Effects of Genetic and Environmental Variation in Solidago Altissima on Associated Arthropod Communities 2012 1241 A common garden approach was used to assess the potential for genetic and environmental variation in a Solidago altissima population to structure an associated insect community and influence the colonization of a dominant herbivore species. Distinct...
Effects of Prior Herbivory on Aphid Colonization of Solidago Altissima Clones 2012 1866 To determine the effects of genetic variation and initial herbivore damage on Solidago altissima and subsequent aphid colonization, I conducted a common garden experiment with greenhouse-grown clones induced by Trirhabda virgata. Seventy-five days af...
Spatial Analysis of Terpenes and Aphid Abundance in Solidago Altissima 2015 903 This study explores the connection between plant chemistry, plant herbivores, and the environment in which plants are grown. Understanding interspecific, community-level interactions is an essential part of understanding ecosystems as a whole. As nat...
The Effects Of Genotype And Spatial Scale On The Associated Pollinator Community Of Solidago Altissima 2016 443 Plant-pollinator interactions are among the most important mutualisms, as pollination is a necessary ecological service that contributes to the maintenance of biodiversity and ecosystem functioning. The plant Solidago altissima has been used to obser...
Vegetation Structure And Interspecific Interactions Predict Distribution And Abundance Of Solidago Specialist Aphids 2017 446 Volatile compounds such as terpenes are often used by plants as insect herbivory deterrents, though terpenes broadly act as semiochemicals, both priming nearby plants and providing host recognition for insects. I focused on the interactions of tall ...
