Data from: Insect oviposition preference between Epichloë-symbiotic and -free grasses does not necessarily reflect larval performance

Miika Laihonen, Kari Saikkonen, Marjo Helander & Toomas Tammaru
Variation in plant communities is likely to modulate the feeding and oviposition behavior of herbivorous insects, and plant associated microbes are largely ignored in this context. Here we take into account that insects feeding on grasses commonly encounter systemic and vertically transmitted (via seeds) fungal Epichloë endophytes, which are regarded as defensive grass mutualists. Defensive mutualism is primarily attributable to alkaloids of fungal origin. To study the effects of Epichloë on insect behavior and performance,...
