Indirect defenses show carrion are predictors of predator abundances on glandular manzanitas (Arctostaphylos glandulosa)

Sarah Layer, Ruth Alcantara & Jerry Addison
Plant systems commonly use interactions known as indirect defenses to protect themselves against herbivory. One such defense is two-staged, beginning with plants utilizing sticky hairs known as glandular trichomes as an indirect defense to attract and trap carrion and provision predators. However, no known studies have specifically tested the efficacy of this defense across a stickiness gradient. We tested if increasing levels of stickiness on glandular manzanitas (Arctostaphylos glandulosa) increase the effectiveness of their herbivory...
