    • Chemical Ecology of Jasmonates as Signals for an Inducible Defense 

      Ian Baldwin Principal Investigator (2014-04-02)
      9507180 Baldwin Leaf damage by herbivores in Nicotiana sylvestris (Solanaceae) produces a damage signal which dramatically increases de novo nicotine synthesis in the roots. The increased synthesis leads to increases in ...
    • Fitness Costs and Benefits of An Induced Defense 

      Ian Baldwin Principal Investigator (2014-04-02)
      9505950 Baldwin Many native plants increase the concentration of toxic metabolites in their tissues when they are attacked by herbivores. While understanding of the mechanisms responsible for these responses has advanced ...
    • Nitrogen-intensive Plastic Responses to Herbivory: Primary Role for a Secondary Metabolite 

      Ian Baldwin Principal Investigator (2014-04-02)
      The growth of herbivores is recognized by most researcher to be limited in large part by a plant's nitrogen content. When a plant is eaten, its remaining tissues exhibit a plethora of responses that include not only ...
    • PYI: Integration of Physiological and Chemical Responses to Herbivory 

      Ian Baldwin Principal Investigator (2014-04-02)
      When the leaves of a plant are eaten by an herbivore, both defensive and physiological responses are observed in the remaining leaves. These responses contribute to a plant's resistance and resilience to herbivory, ...
