Effects of herbivory on growth and biomass allocation in native and introduced species of Lonicera


Effects of herbivory on growth and biomass allocation in native and introduced species of Lonicera



Ecology 75(6): 1661-1672



ISSN/ISBN: 0012-9658

DOI: 10.2307/1939626

Growth and biomass allocation patterns of an invasive vine, Lonicera japonica, and its native congener, L. sempervirens, were compared for 3 herbivory treatments in the southeastern U.S. The objectives of the study were to determine the comparative levels of herbivory between the 2 honeysuckles, to ascertain if the 2 species differ significantly in their growth and biomass allocation in the absence of herbivory, and to evaluate the existence of seasonal effects of herbivory and their subsequent interaction with growth and biomass allocation. There was a total biomass accumulation and greater allocation to leaves in L. japonica, suggesting a compensatory response to herbivory. L. japonica also exhibited lower herbivory in its new range when compared with its congener.
