Defense on the Rocks: Low Monoterpenoid Levels in Plants on Pillars Without Mammalian Herbivores
This study addresses the adaptive dynamics of plant toxins that ward off herbivores, an aspect of chemical warfare in ecosystems. Thyme basil ( Acinos suaveolens) growing in an area regularly grazed by mammals contains double the concentration of monoterpenoids (15.61 vs. 8.18 mg/g dry matter, P = 0...
