1. Plants can respond to herbivore damage with phenotypically plastic changes in quality that negatively affect herbivores and prevent subsequent attack – induced defences. 
Phylloplane bacteria increase the negative impact of food limitation on insect fitness
TLDR
The impacts of diet‐related stressors on insect fitness have been investigated singly, but not simultaneously in populations of herbivorous insects.
Allee effects and population regulation: a test for biotic resistance against an invasive leafroller by resident parasitoids
TLDR
The impact of resident parasitoids on E. postvittana populations is substantial and demonstrates significant biotic resistance against this new invader, despite a lack of evidence for regulation or a demographic Allee effect.
Can inducible resistance in plants cause herbivore aggregations? Spatial patterns in an inducible plant/herbivore model.
TLDR
A spatially explicit model of plant inducible resistance and Herbivore population dynamics is examined to explore how realistic features of resistance and herbivore responses influence spatial patterning, presenting a new type of ecological pattern formation driven by induced trait variation, consumer behavior, and time delays.
Factors Affecting Foliar Oregonin and Condensed Tannin in Red Alder (Alnus rubra Bong.): Phytochemicals Implicated In Defense Against Western Tent Caterpillar (Malacosoma californicum Packard).
TLDR
The results suggest that red alder foliar oregonin and condensed tannin are likely constitutive defenses that are largely determined by genotype, and that the negative correlation of defense compounds with plant internal N status holds in this N-fixing tree.
Ecology and evolution of pathogens in natural populations of Lepidoptera
TLDR
These systems clearly demonstrate that the interactions between insects and pathogens are highly context dependent and environmental factors, particularly diet, can have strong impacts on virulence, transmission and host resistance or tolerance.
Population Cycles in Forest Lepidoptera Revisited
TLDR
The hypothesis that sunspots explain cycles is rejected and the influences of delayed-induced plant defenses on populations are inconsistent, but interactions between plant chemistry, pathogens, and immunity remain rich areas for future study.

Phytochemical Induction by Herbivores
TLDR
Inducible Defences in Soybean Against Herbivorous Insects and the effects of Mammal Browsing on the Chemistry of Deciduous Woody Plants are studied.
Reduced growth and seed set following chemical induction of pathogen defence: does systemic acquired resistance (SAR) incur allocation costs?
TLDR
Fitness costs resulting from the chemical induction of systemic acquired resistance (SAR), a rather unspecific form of defence, which can be induced by and is effective against a broad spectrum of bacteria, fungi and viruses, are focused on.
Induced Plant Responses to Herbivory
TLDR
This review considers the characteristics of changes that relate to their role as defenses in induced responses against herbivores.
Oak Leaf Quality Declines in Response to Defoliation by Gypsy Moth Larvae
Leaves of red oak trees that had been defoliated by gypsy moth larvae during the previous year and again during the period of the study had higher values of tanning coefficients, total phenolics,
Compound effects of induced plant responses on insect herbivores and parasitoids: implications for tritrophic interactions
TLDR
Both the direct and indirect impacts of induction on herbivore and parasitoid success were evaluated in a common experimental system, using clonal poplar trees, the gypsy moth Lymantria dispar, and the gregarious parasitoids.
INDUCED RESPONSES TO HERBIVORY IN WILD RADISH: EFFECTS ON SEVERAL HERBIVORES AND PLANT FITNESS
TLDR
Induced responses in annual wild radish plants, Raphanus raphanistrum and R. sativus, included increased density and total number of setose trichomes on newly formed leaves of previously damaged plants compared to undamaged controls and did not affect the growth of specialist Pieris rapae larvae.
The jasmonate pathway alters herbivore feeding behaviour: consequences for plant defences
TLDR
Induction of the jasmonate pathway may not only determine the amount and distribution of feeding damage by herbivores, but this may feedback to affect the subsequent expression of plant defence.
Persistence of the fungal whitefly pathogen, Aschersonia aleyrodis, on three different plant species
Persistence of Aschersonia aleyrodis, a fungal pathogen of whitefly, was studied on cucumber, gerbera and poinsettia. Germination capacity and infectivity of conidia, which stayed on the plants for
Natural host‐plant quality affects immune defence of an insect herbivore
TLDR
It is shown that natural variation within a food plant species has an effect on the innate immune system of an herbivorous insect and an intricate tritrophic relationship exists between the folivorous Insect, the host tree, and the insect's natural enemies.
INDUCED LONG-TERM RESISTANCE OF BIRCH FOLIAGE AGAINST DEFOLIATORS: DEFENSIVE OR INCIDENTAL?
TLDR
Fertilization of the soil around defoliated trees did not eliminate the change in foliage quality caused by mechanical damage, contrary to the prediction of the nutrient—stress hypothesis.
