Small‐scale indirect plant responses to insect herbivory could have major impacts on canopy photosynthesis and isoprene emission

Abstract:

• Insect herbivores cause substantial changes in the leaves they attack, but their effects on the ecophysiology of neighbouring, non-damaged leaves have never been quantified in natural canopies. We studied how winter moth (Operophtera brumata), a common herbivore in temperate forests, affects the photosynthetic and isoprene emission rates of its host plant, the pedunculate oak (Quercus robur).


• Through a manipulative experiment, we measured leaves on shoots damaged by caterp...
