Whole-body protein turnover reveals the cost of detoxification of secondary metabolites in a vertebrate browser

Au, Jessie; Ford (previously Marsh), Karen; Wallis, Ian; Foley, William


The detoxification limitation hypothesis predicts that the metabolism and biotransformation of plant secondary metabolites (PSMs) elicit a cost to herbivores. There have been many attempts to estimate these costs to mammalian herbivores in terms of energy
