Yong-Da Chen, Angela Moles, Zhao-Jun Bu, Ming-Ming Zhang, Zu-Cheng Wang & Hong-Yan Zhao
PREMISE: Current knowledge about defense strategies in plants under herbivore pressure is predominantly based on vascular plants. Bryophytes are rarely consumed by herbivores since they have ample secondary metabolites. However, it is unknown whether bryophytes have induced defenses against herbivory, and whether there is a trade-off between growth and defense in bryophytes. METHODS: We carried out an experiment with two peatland bryophytes, Sphagnum magellanicum Brid. and S. fuscum (Schimp.) H. Klinggr. Two kinds of herbivory,...
