Summary Initial herbivory and induced plant responses can influence subsequent above- and below-ground herbivore attack. When two life stages of the same herbivore damage different plant parts sequentially, there is strong potential for plants to respond with induced plant defence against the later attacker. Alternatively, the earlier attacker could manipulate the host plant to facilitate the later-feeding life stage. We studied herbivory by foliage-feeding adults and root-feeding larvae of… Expand
