Predicting crown damage to Eucalyptus grandis by Paropsis atomaria with direct and indirect measures of leaf composition

Henery, Martin; Henson, Michael; Wallis, Ian; Stone, C; Foley, William


A genetic basis for variation in resistance to defoliating insects within Eucalyptus species has been identified in many studies. This variation has frequently been ascribed to variation in secondary metabolites but studies investigating variation in resistance to defoliation by paropsine chrysomelids have failed to correlate foliar chemistry with resistance. We found that the extent of crown damage due to defoliation by Paropsis atomaria (Chrysomelidae: Colepoptera) in two matched progeny...[Show more]
