Oxidizable Phenolic Concentrations Do Not Affect Development AND Survival OF Paropsis Atomaria Larvae Eating Eucalyptus Foliage

Marsh, Karen; Zhou, Wufeng; Wigley, Hannah J.; Foley, William


Insect folivores can cause extensive damage to plants. However, different plant species, and even individuals within species, can differ in their susceptibility to insect attack. Polyphenols that readily oxidize have recently gained attention as potential defenses against insect folivores. We tested the hypothesis that variation in oxidizable phenolic concentrations in Eucalyptus foliage influences feeding and survival of Paropsis atomaria (Eucalyptus leaf beetle) larvae. First we demonstrated...[Show more]
