Moore, Ben; Wallis, Ian; Pala-Paul, Jesus; Brophy, Joseph J; Willis, Richard H; Foley, William

Description

Formylated phloroglucinol compounds (FPCs) are the single most important factor determining the amount of foliage that marsupial folivores eat from individual Eucalyptus trees. Folivores need to recognize which trees contain FPCs if they are to avoid them and forage efficiently, they are challenged by great diversity in the types and quantities of FPCs present, even within eucalypt species. We investigated the relationship between FPCs and terpenoids in species with both simple and complex FPC...[Show more]
