1 Although most theories on plant defence assume that costs will result from the production and maintenance of defensive traits, studies on the costs of induced defence against pathogens are comparatively rare. 2 We focus on ®tness costs resulting from the chemical induction of systemic acquired resistance (SAR), a rather unspeci®c form of defence, which can be induced by and is e€ective against a broad spectrum of bacteria, fungi and viruses. 3 We used a model system in which we treated wheat… CONTINUE READING
