Anne Moula, Pia Mutikainen, Marianna Lilley, Liisa Laukkanen, Juha-Pekka Salminen, and Roosa Leimu. 2010. Associations of plant fitness, leaf chemistry, and damage suggest selection mosaic in plant–herbivore interactions. Ecology 20:2650–2659.

Appendix D. Correlations between leaf herbivory and leaf chemical compounds.

TABLE D1. Correlations by population between the amount of leaf herbivory (%) and the contents of leaf chemical compounds. Numbers refer to population names in Table C1 (Appendix C). There were no leaf herbivores present in population 13 (Ruissalo). *** P < 0.001, ** 0.001 < P < 0.01, *0.01 < P < 0.05

   FIG. D1. Association of contents (mg/g dry weight) of (a) antofine, (b) chlorogenic acid, (c) catechin derivatives, (d) total flavonoids, and (e) total lipophilic compounds with the amount of leaf herbivory (%) in 16 study populations of V. hirundinaria. Each line represents one of the study populations. There was no leaf herbivores present in population 13 (Ruissalo).
