Ecological applications of near infrared reflectance spectroscopy – a tool for rapid, cost-effective prediction of the composition of plant and animal tissues and aspects of animal performance
Abstract Many ecological studies rely heavily on chemical analysis of plant and animal tissues. Often, there is limited time and money to perform all the required analyses and this can result in lessExpand

Assessing the evidence for latitudinal gradients in plant defence and herbivory
Summary 1. The idea that biotic interactions, including herbivory, predation and competition are more intense at lower latitudes is widely accepted and underpins several dominant theories on theExpand

Conflicting demands on detoxification pathways influence how common brushtail possums choose their diets.
Most herbivores eat more and survive better when they have access to a variety of foods. One explanation involves the detoxification of plant secondary metabolites (PSMs). By feeding from a varietyExpand

Antiherbivore Chemistry of Eucalyptus--Cues and Deterrents for Marsupial Folivores
Formylated phloroglucinol compounds (FPCs) are the single most important factor determining the amount of foliage that marsupial folivores eat from individual Eucalyptus trees. Folivores need toExpand
