In this paper I examine the effects that the competitive environment in which plants are grown and the timing of herbivore damage have on the expression and pattern of selection acting on plant tolerance to herbivory and resistance to herbivores. I conducted a field experiment involving 720 plants from 24 full-sib families of the common morning glory, Ipomoea purpurea. Plants were grown in one of two competitive environments, and the levels of resistance and tolerance to naturally occurring… CONTINUE READING
