Elemental defense of nickel hyperaccumulator seeds against a generalist insect granivore

Abstract

Hyperaccumulation has been proposed as an elemental defense against herbivores; however, few studies have examined seed defense. This study included two annual Streptanthus species (Brassicaceae) from California serpentine soils: a non-hyperaccumulator (S. insignis) and three populations (representing Y, P, and U morphs) of a Ni hyperaccumulator (S… (More)
