Exploring insect specialization on A. tridentata and A. rothrockii

Naomi Charlet, Elise Cypher, Anu Sethuraman & Tamar Viz
Invertebrates have been shown to specialize to different host environments, both with and without geographic isolation. Some plants emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs) to deter invertebrate herbivory. Specialist invertebrates have been shown to adapt to host plants regardless of VOC deterrents. Sagebrush (Artemisia spp.) is a plant which exhibits this damage-induced resistance. In the White Mountains, Artemisia tridentata and Artemisia rothrockii occupy the same general areas and are closely related yet differ in their chemistry...
