Transcriptome studies of insect herbivory are still rare, yet studies in model systems have uncovered patterns of transcript regulation that appear to provide insights into how insect herbivores attain polyphagy, such as a general increase in expression breadth and regulation of ribosomal, digestion‐ and detoxification‐related genes. We investigated the potential generality of these emerging patterns, in the Swedish comma, Polygonia c‐album, which is a polyphagous, widely‐distributed butterfly… Expand
