The compensating mechanisms responsible for tolerance are nonspecific as a rule and develop after damage has been caused by phytophagous animals or other unfavorable effects. Beyond that, plant tolerance depends on duration, repetition, and phenological periods of the damage effects, and on environmental conditions. We have studied of radial… CONTINUE READING
