While soil resource heterogeneity and root herbivory can have significant direct influences on plant growth, soil heterogeneity may also have indirect effects by influencing the foraging behavior of root herbivores. We used sand-filled greenhouse pots to assess root herbivore foraging behavior and potential interactions between patch quality, herbivore… CONTINUE READING
