Abstract:Different types of feeding behavior have variable effects on photosynthesis, and water stress may be an important factor. Physiological tradeoffs may partly explain reductions in photosynthesis that follow herbivory. Finally, the carbohydrate content of high starch foliage was similar to that of elevated CO2 foliage and appears to stimulate compensatory feeding. Plant responses to herbivory are complex and spatially distinct. The relationship between plants and insects may be altered by global change.
