Lawler, I; Foley, William; Eschler, Bart


We examined intraspecific variation in susceptibility to herbivory by common ringtail possums (Pseudocheirus peregrinus) for two species of Eucalyptus, (E. polyanthemos and E. sideroxylon) and the chemical basis for that variation. Using a no-choice protocol, we observed dry matter intakes by common ringtail possums ranging from 3.28 to 44 g·(kg body mass)-0.75·d-1 for E. polyanthemos and from 2.4 to 67 g·(kg body mass)-0.75·d-1 for E. sideroxylon. We investigated, using correlative analyses,...[Show more]
