COMMUNITY‐WIDE IMPACTS OF HERBIVORE‐INDUCED PLANT RESPONSES IN MILKWEED (ASCLEPIAS SYRIACA)
The effects of early-season herbivory and subsequent induced plant responses have the potential to affect the diversity of herbivorous insect communities. We investigated the seasonal development ofExpand

Specificity of induced plant responses to specialist herbivores of the common milkweed Asclepias syriaca
Induced plant responses to herbivory appear to be universal, yet the degree to which they are specific to sets of herbivores is poorly understood. The generalist/specialist hypothesis predicts thatExpand

A Meta‐Analysis of Adaptive Deme Formation in Phytophagous Insect Populations
The adaptive deme formation (ADF) hypothesis predicts that herbivorous insects become locally adapted to their host plants over time. Since its inception, approximately 17 independent studies haveExpand

PLANT DEFENSE, GROWTH, AND HABITAT: A COMPARATIVE ASSESSMENT OF CONSTITUTIVE AND INDUCED RESISTANCE
The growth rate (GR) hypothesis relates the evolution of plant defense to resource availability and predicts that plants that have evolved in abiotically stressful environments grow inherently moreExpand

Diversity and Habitat Use of Neotropical Harvestmen (Arachnida: Opiliones) in a Costa Rican Rainforest
In tropical rain forests, harvestmen assemblages are extremely diverse, with richness often exceeding 25 species. In the neotropics, there are published accounts of harvestmen faunas in South AmericaExpand

SPATIOTEMPORAL VARIATION IN LEAFMINER POPULATION STRUCTURE AND ADAPTATION TO INDIVIDUAL OAK TREES
Stilbosis quadricustatella leafminers are microlepidopteran specialists of sand-live oak (Quercus geminata). These tiny moths produce one generation per year and have a parasitic life-cycle and longExpand

The effects of maternal salinity and seed environment on germination and growth in Iris hexagona
Seed germination and seedling establishment are determined by local environmental conditions as well as by the environment of the parental generation, resulting in a type of transgenerationalExpand

Ecological play in the coevolutionary theatre: genetic and environmental determinants of attack by a specialist weevil on milkweed
Summary 1 We studied the genetic and environmental determinants of attack by the specialist stem-attacking weevil, Rhyssomatus lineaticollis on Asclepias syriaca. 2 In natural populations,Expand

Growth and reproduction of a clonal plant in response to salinity and florivory
Salinity is increasing in wetland ecosystems, but the consequences for ecological communities are poorly understood. Iris hexagona is the only North American iris that survives in brackish marsh.Expand

Implications of Food Web Interactions for Restoration of Missouri Ozark Glade Habitats
Ozark glades are gaps in forested areas that are dominated by grasses and forbs growing in rocky, nutrient-poor soil. Historically, these open, patchy habitats were maintained by natural andExpand
