Previous experiments showed that wild tobacco plants with experimentally clipped sagebrush neighbors experienced less damage by grasshoppers than tobacco plants with unclipped sagebrush neighbors. This result could have been caused by grasshoppers preferring not to feed near clipped sagebrush. This hypothesis was tested in field choice experiments using six grasshopper species feeding on an unresponsive and uniformly palatable food. When offered food that was either close to clipped sagebrush… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Seasonality of herbivory and communication between individuals of sagebrush
TLDR
A correlation between seasonal herbivore pressure, damage accumulated by plants, and induced responses to experimentally clipping neighbors is found. Expand
Damage to sagebrush attracts predators but this does not reduce herbivory
TLDR
It is suggested that predators and parasitoids were attracted to experimentally clipped sagebrush plants but that these predators were not effective at reducing net damage to the plant. Expand
THE FITNESS CONSEQUENCES OF INTERSPECIFIC EAVESDROPPING BETWEEN PLANTS
TLDR
The fact that eavesdropping had strong effects on herbivory and plant performance suggests that interactions between plant species may be richer than the authors previously suspected. Expand
Associational resistance for mule’s ears with sagebrush neighbors
TLDR
It is demonstrated here that the plant neighborhoods that surrounded focal mule’s ears (Wyethia mollis) individuals affected the damage they received and distance between a focal mules ears individual and its nearest sagebrush neighbor (Artemisia tridentata) was a good predictor of how much leaf area the mules would lose to herbivores over 2 years. Expand
Communication between plants: induced resistance in poplar seedlings following herbivore infestation, mechanical wounding, and volatile treatment of the neighbors
TLDR
Induced responses against feeding injury, mechanical wounding, and volatile treatment in expression levels of PPO, POD, PAL, and LOX suggest interplant communication between poplar seedlings. Expand
Priming of plant defense responses in nature by airborne signaling between Artemisia tridentata and Nicotiana attenuata
TLDR
This study demonstrates priming of plant defense responses as a mechanism of plant–plant signaling in nature, and provides an example for the analysis of between-plant signaling under ecologically realistic conditions. Expand
Precipitation affects plant communication and defense.
TLDR
This experiment found that plants receiving additional water over summer and/or volatile cues from neighbor donor plants showed reduced herbivore damage compared to control plants, and suggested that sagebrush was better defended during wetter and hotter seasons. Expand
An ecogenomic analysis of herbivore‐induced plant volatiles in Brassica juncea
TLDR
This study shows that HIPV blends vary considerably over a short period of time, and these changes are actively regulated at the gene expression level, and argues that the temporal dynamics of HIPVs may play a key role in shaping the response of insects associated with plants. Expand
Temporal dynamics of induced responses in Brassica juncea
TLDR
Morphological responses are slower than chemical responses, they also contribute to induced plant resistance in a relatively short time span and are validated with analysis of genes involved in signalling and biosynthetic pathways that govern the expression of these responses. Expand
Kin recognition affects plant communication and defence
TLDR
The results indicate that plants can respond differently to cues from kin, making it less likely that emitters will aid strangers and making it more likely that receivers will respond to cues to relatives. Expand

Communication between plants: induced resistance in wild tobacco plants following clipping of neighboring sagebrush
TLDR
It is reported the first rigorous, experimental evidence demonstrating that undamaged plants respond to cues released by neighbors to induce higher levels of resistance against herbivores in nature. Expand
Population dynamics after wildfires in sagebrush grasslands.
TLDR
Investigation in big sagebrush/Thurber needlegrass communities burned in wildfires in the central Great Basin found that the reestablishment of downy brome dominance predisposes the vegetation to recurring wildfires and cyclic environmental degradation. Expand
Arthropod dynamics on sagebrush (Artemisia tridentata): effects of plant chemistry and avian predation
TLDR
It is suggested that the shrubs responded to the removal of herbivorous, leaf-chewing arthropods by altering chemical allocation patterns; the changes in chemistry persisted for over a year because recolonization of the defaunated plants by these herbivores was slow. Expand
An Ecological Investigation of Two Desert Tobaccos
Two species of Nicotiana are widespread in the deserts of intermountain western North America. Nicotiana attenuate Torr. dominates the cold deserts of the Great Basin, while N. trigonophylla Dun. isExpand
Rapidly Induced Defenses and Talking Trees: The Devil's Advocate Position
TLDR
No evidence either that experimental defoliation reduces subsequent levels of herbivore attack or that trees communicate is found; it is argued that most induced responses may have negligible consequences for field populations. Expand
Rapid Changes in Tree Leaf Chemistry Induced by Damage: Evidence for Communication Between Plants
TLDR
Potted poplar ramets and sugar maple seedlings responded in a manner similar to that of the damaged poplars, suggesting an airborne cue originating in damaged tissues may stimulate biochemical changes in neighboring plants that could influence the feeding and growth of phytophagous insects. Expand
Sagebrush carbon allocation patterns and grasshopper nutrition: the influence of CO2 enrichment and soil mineral limitation
TLDR
An overall negative relationship of consumption versus leaf volatile concentration suggests that terpenes may have been one of several important leaf characteristics limiting consumption of the low nutrient hosts. Expand
Influence of sagebrush terpenoids on mule deer preference
TLDR
Methacrolein appears to be an important preference determinant among big sagebrush subspecies, andp-cymene between black sagebrush and big sage Brush, and the NVCTFs containing sesquiterpene lactones as one of their constituents were closely related to the preference of all four taxa. Expand
Induced Responses to Herbivory
TLDR
This comprehensive evaluation and synthesis of a rapidly-developing field provides state-of-the-discipline reviews, and highlights areas of research which might be productive, should appeal to a wide variety of theoretical and applied researchers. Expand
Induced plant responses and information content about risk of herbivory.
TLDR
The relationship between the information about risk of herbivory and plant defense can be evaluated by determining if the information available to plants is reliable enough to support the evolution of plastic-induced defenses. Expand
