A Phylogenetic Analysis of Pheromone Communication in Primitive Moths
A robust phylogeny exists for Lepidoptera, but the phylogenetic arrangement of the archaic lineages, as well as several lineages within the Ditrysia, has not been fully resolved (Kristensen andExpand

Drivers of host plant shifts in the leaf beetle Chrysomela lapponica: natural enemies or competition?
1. The leaf beetle, Chrysomela lapponica, originally uses the salicyl glucosides (SGs) of its host plants to sequester salicylaldehyde, which serves as a defence against generalist enemies butExpand

Variations in the effects of local foliar damage on life span of individual leaves of downy birch (Betula pubescens)
Although the premature abscission of leaves damaged by herbivores has been discovered decades ago, the reduction in leaf life span caused by herbivory remains poorly documented, and the sources ofExpand

Hiding in the background: community-level patterns in invertebrate herbivory across the tundra biome
Invertebrate herbivores depend on external temperature for growth and metabolism. Continued warming in tundra ecosystems is proposed to result in increased invertebrate herbivory. However, empiricalExpand

Biases in studies of spatial patterns in insect herbivory
The properties of the human mind are responsible for a number of biases that affect the quality of scientific research. However, scientists working in the fields of ecology and environmental scienceExpand

Hemispheric asymmetries in herbivory: do they exist?
Summary Latitudinal patterns in herbivory are widely debated. A recent publication (Zhang et al., Journal of Ecology, 104, 2016: 1089–1095) concluded that the absolute levels of herbivoryExpand
