The evolution of plant defensive traits in response to selection pressures imposed by herbivores is central to co-evolutionary theory. To demonstrate the role of herbivores as selective agents on plant resistance there must be variability in plant resistance to herbivores within a plant population. This variability must be under genetic control, and the variability in plant resistant traits and consequently herbivore damage to plants must reflect variability in plant fitness. We used a common… CONTINUE READING
