Tucker, David J.; Wallis, Ian; Bolton, Jessica; Ford (previously Marsh), Karen; Rosser, Adam A.; Brereton, Ian M.; Nicolle, Dean; Foley, William

Description

Different folivorous marsupials select their food from different subgenera of Eucalyptus, but the choices cannot be explained by known antifeedants, such as formylated phloroglucinol compounds or tannins, or by nutritional quality. Eucalypts contain a wide variety of plant secondary metabolites so it is difficult to use traditional methods to identify the chemicals that determine food selection. Therefore, we used a metabolomic approach in which we employed1H nuclear magnetic resonance...[Show more]
