Induced plant responses to herbivory appear to be universal, yet the degree to which they are specific to sets of herbivores is poorly understood. The generalist/specialist hypothesis predicts that generalist herbivores are more often negatively affected by host plant defenses, wheras specialists may be either unaffected by or attracted to these same “plant defenses”. Therefore, specialists should be less predictable than generalists in their responses to induced plant resistance traits. To… Expand
