Data from: Diversity and abundance of phyllosphere bacteria are linked to insect herbivory

Parris T. Humphrey, Trang T. Nguyen, Martha M. Villalobos & Noah K. Whiteman
Simultaneous or sequential attack by herbivores and microbes is common in plants. Many seed plants exhibit a defence trade-off against chewing herbivorous insects and leaf-colonizing (‘phyllosphere’) bacteria, which arises from cross-talk between the phytohormones jasmonic acid (JA, induced by many herbivores) and salicylic acid (SA, induced by many bacteria). This cross-talk may promote reciprocal susceptibility in plants between phyllosphere bacteria and insect herbivores. In a population of native bittercress (Cardamine cordifolia, Brassicaceae), we tested whether...
