Available and not total nitrogen in leaves explains key chemical differences between the eucalypt subgenera

Wallis, Ian; Nicolle, Dean; Foley, William


Many ecologists regard nitrogen as a key element in the life-histories of herbivore populations. Consequently, those studying interactions between plants and animals often attempt to link feeding to the concentration of nitrogen (N) in plants. This approach disregards the possibility that in many plants, especially those rich in tannins, animals cannot digest much of the N. The ubiquity of tannins in plants led us to hypothesise that the concentrations of available nitrogen may be more...[Show more]
