Biotic stress has a major impact on the process of natural selection in plants. As plants have evolved under variable environmental conditions, they have acquired a diverse spectrum of defensive strategies against pathogens and herbivores. Genetic variation in the expression of plant defence offers valuable insights into the evolution of these strategies. The 'zigzag' model, which describes an ongoing arms race between inducible plant defences and their suppression by pathogens, is now a… CONTINUE READING
