Data from: Root and shoot glucosinolate allocation patterns follow optimal defence allocation theory

Tomonori Tsunoda, Sebastian Krosse, Nicole Van Dam & Nicole M. Van Dam
1. Optimal defence allocation theory (ODT) is one of the most prominent theoretical frameworks to explain the allocation of defence compounds within plants. It predicts that the most valuable and vulnerable plant organs have the highest levels of chemical defence. The ODT has been well worked out and experimentally tested for shoot defences, but not for root defences. To assess if ODT principles apply similarly to roots and shoots, we examined glucosinolates in aboveground and...
