Data from: Effect of cadmium accumulation on the performance of plants and of herbivores that cope differently with organic defenses

Diogo Prino Godinho, Helena Cristina Serrano, Anabela B. Da Silva, Cristina Branquinho & Sara Magalhães
Some plants are able to accumulate in their shoots metals at levels that are toxic to most other organisms. This ability may serve as a defence against herbivores. Therefore, both metal-based and organic defences may affect herbivores. However, how metal accumulation affects the interaction between herbivores and organic plant defences remains overlooked. To fill this gap, we studied the interactions between tomato (Solanum lycopersicum), a model plant that accumulates cadmium, and two spidermite species, Tetranychus...
