Herbivore-induced changes in plant carbon allocation: Assessment of below-ground C fluxes using carbon-14
Effects of above-ground herbivory on shortterm plant carbon allocation were studied using maize (Zea mays) and a generalist lubber grasshopper (Romalea guttata). We hypothesized that above-ground herbivory stimulates ...
Effects of above-ground herbivory on soil microbial biomass in conventional and no-tillage agroecosystems
The effects of above-ground herbivory on soil microbial biomass associated with maize (Zea muys) roots were measured in field experiments. Different grazing intensities were established by placing grasshoppers (0, 5, 10 ...
