Compensatory Plant Growth as a Response to Herbivory

Abstract

Compensatory growth in plants subjected to herbivory may alleviate the potential deleterious effects of tissue damage, whether to vegetative or reproductive organs. Tissue destruction is rarely, if ever, translated monotonically into a proportional reduction of final yield. Internal mechanisms of compensation involve modifications of plant metabolism; external mechanisms of compensation involve modifications of the plant environment that are favorable to plant growth and yield. /// Компенсаторный рост растений в резупьтате выедания фитофагами может смягчать потенциальный отрицательный эффект повреждения тканей вегетативных либо репродуктивных органов. Деструкция тканей редко, если это наблюдается вообще, отражается в пропорциональном снижении окончательного урожая. Внутренние компенсаторные механизмы включают модификалии метаболизма растений; внешние компенсаторные механизмы вкпючают модификации среды, способствующие росту и урожайности растения.
