Induced resistance in Ipomoea purpurea


Journal Article

Induced changes that occur in the foliage of the annual morning glory when subjected to prior damage reduce the growth rate, consumption rate, and growth efficiency of larvae of the generalist lepidopteran Spodoptera eridania. They also alter the pattern of damage caused by specialist flea beetles, Chaetocnema confinis, and by generalist insect herbivores. No effects of induction were detected on specialist tortoise beetles, Deloyala guttata and Metriona bicolor. -from Authors
