Impact of two specialist insect herbivores on reproduction of horse nettle, Solanum carolinense

  title={Impact of two specialist insect herbivores on reproduction of horse nettle, Solanum carolinense},
  author={Michael J. Wise and Christopher F. Sacchi},
The frequency of coevolution as a process of strong mutual interaction between a single plant and herbivore species has been questioned in light of more commonly observed, complex relationships between a plant and a suite of herbivore species. Despite recognition of the possibility of diffuse coevolution, relatively few studies have examined ecological responses of plants to herbivores in complex associations. We studied the impact of two specialist herbivores, the horse nettle beetle… CONTINUE READING
