Foliar quality of co-occurring mallee eucalypts: balance of primary and secondary metabolites reflects past growing conditions

Steinbauer, Martin J.; Wallis, Ian; Davies, Noel W.; Watson, Simon J.


Foliar quality for herbivores is determined by the balance of primary and secondary metabolites which is dependent on leaf age which in turn is determined by the periodicity of flushing and the rate of abscission. We conducted a 10-month longitudinal study in northeastern Victoria, Australia, of the quality of fully expanded leaves of Eucalyptus gracilis, E. socialis, E. dumosa and E. incrassata. We measured N and available N (AvailN) as well as sideroxylonals and other formylated...[Show more]
