  • Recent studies demonstrate that generalist insect herbivores may be more subject to predation than specialists and suggest that this pattern is related to the availability and utilization of plant-derived natural products in diets of the latter. This intuitively attractive hypothesis has seldom been tested under natural conditions, however. A well-described plant-insect system, the buckeye butterfly, Junonia coenia, and its iridoid glycoside-containing host plants, was used to test the… CONTINUE READING
