Evidence for Metabolic Turnover of Polyphenolics in Tropical Brown Algae

Abstract

Polyphenolic chemical defenses of plants have traditionally been classified as immobile or quantitative and as such are believed to have low to negligible rates of turnover. This assumption is an important element in many ecological theories of chemical defense that invoke cost versus benefit relationships, because (1) turnover increases the metabolic cost… (More)
