Chemical defense strategies, induction timing, growth, and tradeoffs in Pinus aristata and Pinus flexilis

David Soderberg
Tradeoffs among plant defense investment and fitness traits, including growth, are often invoked to explain evolutionary strategies targeted at resisting herbivores. Many Pinus species have specialized herbivores, including the mountain pine beetle, Dendroctonus ponderosae, (MPB), and have historically been a focus of defense investigations. We compared defense traits of two high-elevation Pinus species, P. aristata and P. flexilis, that are hosts to MPB and hypothesized to have different growth and defense traits and potential tradeoffs....
