SEED DISPERSAL AND THE HOLOCENE MIGRATION OF WOODLAND HERBS
The distribution of many woodland herbs extends 1000-2000 km in a north- south direction, yet the majority of these species grow clonally, have little recruitment by seed, and possess no obviousExpand
Leaf Quality and Enemy Avoidance by the Larvae of a Pyralid Moth
Low nutritional quality of mature plant leaves generally leads to slow growth of herbivores. Slow growth, in turn, is thought to increase the vulnerability of herbivores to their annual enemies. IExpand
The osmaterial glands of the swallowtail butterfly Eurytides marcellus as a defence against natural enemies
ABSTRACT. 1 Natural enemies account for almost all mortality of zebra swallowtail caterpillars (Eurytides marcellus [Cramer]) feeding on pawpaw (Asimina spp.) in Florida. 2 The osmaterial glands ofExpand
Defence and development in a gregarious leaf‐mining beetle
Abstract. 1 The gregarious larvae of the chrysomelid beetle Microrhopala vittata mine the leaves of goldenrods (Solidago spp.). These mines serve both as food and as shelter for the larvae. 2Expand
Nitrogen Content of Food Plants and Vulnerability of Pieris Rapae to Natural Enemies
We tested the commonly made assumption that reduction in leaf quality reduces the survivorship of herbivores indirectly by increasing their exposure to natural enemies. Caterpillars of the butterflyExpand
CLONAL GROWTH AND RAMET PERFORMANCE IN THE WOODLAND HERB, ASARUM CANADENSE
1 We report the results from a 7-year study on the patterns of reproduction and vegetative spread of Asarum canadense, conducted in replicate plots located in the understorey of early and lateExpand
Population growth and viability analyses of the clonal woodland herb, Asarum canadense
1  Long-term demographic field studies combined with simulation models that incorporated two types of stochasticity were used to investigate the relative impact of reproduction and survival on theExpand
Mechanisms and consequences of selective oviposition by the zebra swallowtail butterfly
Abstract Zebra swallowtail butterflies, Eurytides marcellus, were studied in the field to determine (1) whether the behavioural response of a female to host plant individuals, pawpaws (Asimina spp.),Expand

SummaryInsect herbivores that require young foliage for successful larval development are often restricted to a single generation during a year by the scarcity of suitable food over most of theExpand
