Data from: Ontogenetic changes in insect herbivory in birch (Betula pubesecens): the importance of plant apparency

Vitali Zverev, Elena L. Zvereva & Mikhail V. Kozlov
1. Several theories aim at predicting changes in the interactions between plants and herbivores over the lifetime of a plant. Hypotheses based on ontogenetic changes in resource allocation to plant defence and in plant apparency lead to partly opposing predictions regarding the differences in levels of herbivory between juvenile and mature plant individuals. 2. We tested these predictions by measuring background foliar losses to insects in saplings and mature trees of downy birch (Betula pubescens)...
