Within-plant variation in induced defence in developing leaves of cotton plants

  title={Within-plant variation in induced defence in developing leaves of cotton plants},
  author={Peter Anderson and Jep Agrell},
According to optimal defence theory (ODT) plants should invest in stronger defence in the most valuable parts, such as reproductive or young tissue. Cotton plants are known to express high resistance to herbivore feeding in the developing leaves at the top of the plant after herbivore-damage. Cotton plants also have developing leaves on side shoots from the nodes all along the plant. This allowed us to investigate within-plant distribution of defence between younger tissues at different… CONTINUE READING
