▪ Abstract Although research on modern plant-arthropod associations is one of the cornerstones of biodiversity studies, very little of that interest has percolated down to the fossil record. Much of this neglect is attributable to dismissal of Paleozoic plant-arthropod interactions as being dominated by detritivory, with substantive herbivory not emerging until the Mesozoic. Recent examination of associations from some of the earliest terrestrial communities indicates that herbivory probably… Expand
Earliest Evidence of Insect Endophytic Oviposition
Abstract The knowledge of fossil plant-insect interactions is almost entirely restricted to evidences of feeding behavior. Records of endophytic oviposition are relatively scarce, with previousExpand

Fossil evidences of gall-inducing arthropod—plant interactions in the Indian subcontinent
Abstract The sedimentary basins of India offer a reasonably convincing record the distribution of plant fossils from different geologic periods of the Palaeozoic, Mesozoic, and Cenozoic. Each periodExpand
The origin of herbivory on land: Initial patterns of plant tissue consumption by arthropods
The early fossil record of terrestrial arthropod herbivory consists of two pulses. The first pulse was concentrated during the latest Silurian to Early Devonian (417 to 403 Ma), and consists of theExpand

The Fossil Record of Plant-Insect Dynamics
Progress toward understanding the dynamics of ancient plant-insect associations has addressed major patterns in the ecology and evolution of herbivory and pollination. This advancement involvesExpand
Paleobiology of middle Eocene plant-insect associations from the Pacific Northwest A preliminary report
Well-preserved, middle Eocene floras from the Pacific Northwest, particularly the graben-fill deposit at Republic, Washington, offer an unique window for examination of some of the earliestExpand
Earliest record of exophytic insect oviposition on plant material from the latest Pennsylvanian (Gzhelian, Stephanian C) of the Saale Basin, Germany
Abstract The Late Palaeozoic fossil record of plant-insect interactions contains few records of oviposition. Here we report the earliest evidence of exophytic oviposition, where eggs are laidExpand

Fossil Evidence for Plant-Arthropod Interactions in the Palaeozoic and Mesozoic [and Discussion]
TLDR
An important feature of pre-Cretaceous material is the evidence from coprolites and gut-contents of spore eating by arthropods, which could clearly have had a dispersal role of value to the plant as well as its evident benefit as a source of nutrition for the animal involved. Expand
Interaction and Coevolution of Plants and Arthropods during the Palaeozoic and Mesozoic
TLDR
It is concluded that there is much evidence in the fossil record suggesting plant-arthropod interaction, but many more observations are required before detailed interpretations concerning cocvolution can be made. Expand
Evidence of pteridophyte–arthropod interactions in the fossil record
TLDR
Pteridophyte spores in fossil droppings (coprolites) indicate the prevalence of arthropod spore-eating in the Palaeozoic, which may have had compensations for the source plant and evidently represented the start of the co–evolution which culminated in the elaborate adaptations shown by flowering plants and their insect pollination vectors. Expand
Coprolites as evidence for plant–animal interaction in Siluro–Devonian terrestrial ecosystems
TLDR
The discovery of coprolites in Upper Silurian and Lower Devonian rocks from the Welsh Borderland demonstrate the cycling of primary productivity in early terrestrial ecosystems. Expand
New insights into early land ecosystems: a glimpse of a lilliputian world
TLDR
The earliest body fossils of unequivocal terrestrial arthropods isolated from the same locality as the Přidoli plants suggest that the decomposer/microherbivore/predator soil and litter communities found in the Lower and Middle Devonian extend back at least into the Silurian. Expand
Evidence of arthropod‐plant interactions in the Upper Triassic of the southwestern United States
Leaves from the Upper Triassic Chinle Formation in the southwestern United States show evi dence of having provided nourishment and shelter for several different types of arthropods. This evidenceExpand
Techniques for the study of plant/arthropod interactions in the fossil record
TLDR
Examples of each type of interaction from the fossil record (Devonian-Tertiary) are presented and the importance of such data in terrestrial palaeoecological studies is emphasised. Expand

TLDR
It is shown that before the demise of Pennsylvanian age coal-swamp forests, a highly stereotyped life cycle was already established between an insect that was consuming internal plant tissue and a vascular plant host responding to that herbivory. Expand
Plant-animal Interaction: The Effect of Permian Megaherbivores on the Glossopterid Flora
TLDR
With the appearance and diversification of dinocephalian and anomodont terrestrial herbivores in the Permian, plants responded to this intense herbivory by deterrence and escape and high activity rates and possibly homeothermy may have evolved in these Herbivores. Expand
An Evolutionary and Ecological Perspective of the Insect Fauna of Ferns
TLDR
Differences in morphological complexity between angiosperms and ferns probably accounts for a portion of the underutilization of f Ferns, but chemical defense mechanisms and ecological characteristics such as population size or phenology may be of importance. Expand
