Herbivore population feeding pressure on plant hosts: feedback evolution and host conservation



Herbivore population feeding pressure on plant hosts: feedback evolution and host conservation



Oikos 533: 289-302



From a review of the literature, a table is presented showing the proportions of terrestrial plant hosts consumed by herbivore populations, mainly in forests and grasslands. Various herbivore population control mechanisms and evolution are examined, together with how these function interdependently to achieve some equilibrium in the economy of herbivore-plant systems.
