The effect of anthracnose (Discula destructiva) infection on plant-herbivore interactions in dogwood (Cornus florida)


The natural occurrence of dogwood anthracnose (Discula destructiva) on young dogwood seedlings planted in different microenvironments in the southern Appalachian Mountains provided an opportunity to examine the effects of biotic stress on phenolic defense and insect herbivory. Dogwood trees planted in forest understory, canopy gaps, and along forest edge… (More)
