Role of Volatile and Non-Volatile Plant Secondary Metabolites in Host Tree Selection by Christmas Beetles

Matsuki, M; Foley, William; Floyd, R.B.

Description

Individual Eucalyptus trees in south-eastern Australia vary considerably in susceptibility to herbivores. On the one hand, studies with insect herbivores have suggested that variation in the concentrations of foliar monoterpenes is related to variation in susceptibility. On the other, studies with marsupial folivores have suggested that variation in the concentrations of sideroxylonals (a group of formylated phloroglucinol compounds) is responsible for variation in susceptibility. We examined...[Show more]
