Relationship between chemical functional groups on Eucalyptus secondary metabolites and their effectiveness as marsupial antifeedants
Eucalyptus displays strong intraspecific variation in resistance to browsing by marsupial folivores that can be attributed to variation in the concentration and type of diformylphloroglucinol compounds (DFPCs) in the foliage. In this study, we ask which functional groups of diformylphloroglucinol compounds determine their effectiveness in deterring feeding. We used a simple and highly deterrent compound, jensenone, as a model DFPC and compared its activity to structural variants that differ in...[Show more]
