Does excretion of secondary metabolites always involve a measurable metabolic cost? Fate of plant antifeedant salicin in common brushtail possum, Trichosurus vulpecula

McLean, Stuart; Pass, Georgia; Foley, William; Brandon, Sue; Davies, Noel


Salicin was administered orally to six brushtail possums by incorporation in food for six days at three dose levels (0.05, 0.5, and 1.5% wet weight), giving mean ± SD daily intakes of 0.31 ± 0.09, 2.76 ± 0.75, and 6.04 ± 1.12 mmol salicin. Metabolites
