Data from: Tradeoff between physical and chemical defense in plant seeds is mediated by seed mass

Bo Wang, Joseph S. Phillips & Kyle W. Tomlinson
Plants have evolved both physical and chemical defenses to make the nutrients of attacked organs difficult to access or more toxic to resist animal consumption or/and pathogen attack. Although it is intuitive that a tradeoff could exist between physical and chemical defenses because of finite defense resources, many studies have failed to detect this tradeoff. We hypothesized that tradeoff between physical and chemical defenses in individual organs was mediated by the total resource allocation to...
