White clover growing in New Zealand is experiencing increasing levels of ultraviolet-B (UV-B) radiation as a result of ozone depletion. We evaluated the effects of UV-B radiation on the foliar chemistry of two populations of white clover (Trifolium repens L.), ’Huia’ and ’Tienshan,’ and the consequences for the performance of armyworms (Spodoptera litura) and cutworms (Graphania mutans). Plants were grown in controlled environment rooms with and without supplemental UV-B radiation at a dose of… CONTINUE READING
