BACKGROUND Long-lived trees can accumulate mutations throughout their lifetimes that may influence biotic and abiotic interactions. For example, some Eucalyptus trees display marked variation in herbivore defence within a single canopy.

These mosaic trees provide a unique opportunity to...[Show more]
