Title: Effects of elevated carbon dioxide and ozone on the phytochemistry of aspen and performance of an herbivore

Author: Kopper, Brian J.; Lindroth, Richard L.;

Date: 2003

Source: Oecologia. 134: 95-103.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)


The purpose of this study was to assess the independent and interactive effects of CO2, O3, and plant genotype on the foliar quality of a deciduous tree and the performance of a herbivorous insect. Two trembling aspen (Populus tremuloides Michaux) genotypes differing in response to CO2 and O3 were grown at the Aspen FACE (Free Air CO2 Enrichment) site located in northern Wisconsin, USA.

Keywords: Free-Air CO2 Enrichment, Populus tremuloides, genetic variation, Malacosoma disstria, plant-insect interactions
