Elevational gradients have been highly useful for understanding the underlying forces driving variation in plant traits and plant-insect herbivore interactions. A widely held view from these studies has been that greater herbivory under warmer and less variable climatic conditions found at low elevations has resulted in stronger herbivore selection on plant defences. However, this prediction has been called into question by conflicting empirical evidence, which could be explained by a number of… Expand
Variation in growth and defence traits among plant populations at different elevations: Implications for adaptation to climate change
Alpine plants occurring at high elevation are vulnerable to ongoing climate change, yet relatively little is known about the potential for high‐elevation species to adapt to changing environmentalExpand
Molecular and ecological plant defense responses along an elevational gradient in a boreal ecosystem
TLDR
It is suggested that plant defense responses at both the molecular and ecological levels are modulated by the combination of climate and herbivory pressure, such that plants under different environmental conditions differentially direct the resources available to specific antiherbivore strategies. Expand
Parallel increases in insect herbivory and defenses with increasing elevation for both saplings and adult trees of oak (Quercus) species.
TLDR
These findings suggest disassociated patterns of elevational variation in herbivory and leaf traits, which, in turn, are independent of plant ontogenetic stage. Expand
Latitudinal and Elevational Gradients in Plant Defences and Herbivory in Temperate Trees: Recent Findings, Underlying Drivers, and the Use of Genomic Tools for Uncovering Clinal Evolution
TLDR
There is a need to merge research on landscape genetics and ecological studies of plant-intraspecific clines in plant-herbivore interactions to unveil the genetic basis of clinal evolution in plant defences. Expand
Warming alters sex-specific responses in leaf defense against insect herbivory in Populus cathayana
TLDR
Results show that sex-specific leaf defense against insect herbivory can be mediated by climate warming, and that higher leaf Herbivory in females under warming is mainly influenced by decreases in induced defense responses rather than constitutive defense responses. Expand
Herbivore‐induced defenses are not under phylogenetic constraints in the genus Quercus (oak): Phylogenetic patterns of growth, defense, and storage
TLDR
Growth–defense constraints exist within the Quercus genus, although there are adaptations to herbivory that vary among species, and the phylogenetic nature of trade‐offs between characteristics of growth, chemical defenses, and nutrient re‐allocation is demonstrated. Expand
Evolutionary Ecology of Plant-Herbivore Interaction
The interaction between plants and their herbivores has spurred the evolution of multiple traits in the resource base – the host plants – as well as the evolution and diversification of differentExpand
Production of constitutive and induced secondary metabolites is coordinated with growth and storage in Norway spruce saplings
TLDR
The results highlight that light and/or carbon limitation may constrain constitutive and JA-induced biosynthesis of SM in coordination with growth, NSC storage and mobilization. Expand
Greater phylogenetic distance from native oaks predicts escape from insect leaf herbivores by non-native oak saplings.
TLDR
This study contributes to a better understanding of how evolutionary relationships between native and non-native plant species determine the latter's success in novel environments via locally shared enemies, and encourages more work investigating the plant traits that mediate the effects of phylogenetic distance on enemy escape.

Biotic and abiotic factors associated with altitudinal variation in plant traits and herbivory in a dominant oak species.
TLDR
Overall, these findings suggest that altitudinal gradients in herbivory and defenses in Q. robur are uncoupled and that elevational variation in herbvory and plant traits responds mainly to abiotic factors. Expand
Latitudinal variation in plant chemical defences drives latitudinal patterns of leaf herbivory
TLDR
It is suggested that abiotic factors shape latitudinal variation in plant defences and that these defences in turn underlie latitudinal variations in leaf herbivory. Expand
High elevation Plantago lanceolata plants are less resistant to herbivory than their low elevation conspecifics: is it just temperature?
TLDR
It is proposed that both lower herbivore pressure, and colder temperatures relax the defense syndrome of high elevation plants. Expand
Assessing the influence of biogeographical region and phylogenetic history on chemical defences and herbivory in Quercus species.
TLDR
Results suggest that historical processes and large-scale drivers have shaped differences in allocation to constitutive defences between Palearctic and Nearctic oaks, and shared evolutionary history appears to mediate some of these biogeographical patterns in allocation of chemical defences. Expand
Differential allocation and deployment of direct and indirect defences by Vicia sepium along elevation gradients
TLDR
The findings show that plant allocation to defences are subject to trade-offs depending on local conditions, and point to a feedback mechanism linking local herbivore pressure, predator abundance and the defence investment of plants. Expand
Latitudinal patterns in plant defense: evolution of cardenolides, their toxicity and induction following herbivory.
TLDR
Using >50 species of milkweed (Asclepias spp.), it is shown that variation among plant species in the induction of toxic cardenolides is explained by latitude, with higher inducibility evolving more frequently at lower latitudes. Expand
The simultaneous inducibility of phytochemicals related to plant direct and indirect defences against herbivores is stronger at low elevation
TLDR
The results highlight that the complex regulation of multiple defence traits strongly vary across elevational gradients and build towards a better understanding of the multiple mechanisms underlying trait evolution and species interactions along ecological gradients. Expand

  • Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 2012
TLDR
The pattern of association observed between oak leaf traits and abiotic environments was consistent with a combination of a seasonality gradient, which may relate to different herbivore pressures, and the resource availability hypothesis, which posits that herbivores exert greater selection on plants in resource‐limited abiotics. Expand
Climate‐driven change in plant–insect interactions along elevation gradients
TLDR
An empirical model is used to predict how specialist herbivore abundance may shift with respect to elevation in the near future, and how plant communities and species-specific plant defence syndromes will change in response to the climate-driven Herbivore colonization of higher altitudes. Expand
