Biochemical and evolutionary aspects of arthropod predation on ferns
TLDR
It is found that in a measured locality, ferns were no less attacked than the angiospermous flora in the state of Veracruz, Mexico, suggesting possible coevolution of arthropods and f Ferns both before and after the radiation of angiosperms.
Chemotaxonomy and phytochemical ecology of bracken
TLDR
A wide range of secondary plant substances also occur in bracken including sesquiterpenoids, echydones, cyanogenic glycosides, tannins and phenolic acids.
Patterns of Aspergillus niger var. phoenicis (Corda) Al-Musallam infection in Namibian populations ofWelwitschia mirabilis Hook.f.
TLDR
Field studies conducted in different geographic areas of Namibia in June/July 1998 showed clear regional patterns in the level of fungal infection, supporting previous evidence that Probergrothius sexpunctatis (Heteroptera) is an important insect vector in disease transmission.
Role of Phenolics in Plant Evolution.
TLDR
Tony Swain was in the forefront of such studies and applied his extreme originality and enthusiasm to show that biochemical diversity, engendered by species interactions, holds the key to understanding the evolution of plants.
INSECT‐FERN ASSOCIATIONS
TLDR
The suggestion that ferns are under‐utilized as a food source by insects is discussed on the basis of an extensive survey of the literature, suggesting a long persistent association between f Ferns and insects.
Chemically Mediated Interactions between Plants and Other Organisms
TLDR
Adaptation to Resource Availability as a Determinant of Chemical Defense Strategies in Woody Plants and Multifaceted Chemically Based Resistance in Plants is studied.
