Title: Foliar quality influences tree-herbivore-parasitoid interactions: effects of elevated CO2, O3, and plant genotype

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)
This study examined the effects of carbon dioxide (CO2)-, ozone (O3)-, and genotype-mediated changes in quaking aspen (Populus tremuloides) chemistry on performance of the forest tent caterpillar (Malacosoma disstria) and its dipteran parasitoid (Compsilura concinnata) at the Aspen Free-Air CO2 Enrichment (FACE) site. Parasitized and non-parasitized forest tent caterpillars were reared on two aspen genotypes under elevated levels of CO2 and O3, alone and in combination.
Keywords: Free-air CO2 enrichment, forest tent caterpillar, Malacosoma disstria, quaking aspen, tritrophic interactions
