Leaf wounding or simulated herbivory in young N. attenuata plants reduces carbon delivery to roots and root tips
Main conclusion: InNicotiana attenuataseedlings, simulated herbivory by the specialistManduca sextadecreases root growth and partitioning of recent photoassimilates to roots in contrast to increased partitioning reported for older plants.Root elongation rate in Nicotiana attenuata has been shown to decrease after leaf herbivory, despite reports of an increased proportion of recently mobilized photoassimilate being delivered towards the root system in many species after similar treatments.
