Spatial distribution of defense chemicals and markers and the maintenance of chemical variation

Andrew, Rose; Peakall, Rodney; Wallis, Ian; Foley, William


Exploring the spatial distribution of variation in plant secondary metabolites is critical for understanding the evolutionary ecology of biochemical diversity in wild organisms. In the present study, concentrations of foliar sideroxylonal, an important and highly heritable defense chemical of Eucalyptus melliodora, displayed strong, fine-scale spatial autocorrelation. The spatial patterns observed could promote associational effects on herbivore foraging decisions, which may influence the...[Show more]
