Abstract: Plants balance resource allocation to growth with antiherbivore defenses for survival. Sometimes, these defenses fail and insect herbivores outbreak. Because they lack a recent coevolutionary history, exotic herbivores often overcome plant defenses, becoming invasive in impacted ecosystems. I examine the effect of two invasive sap-feeding insects, hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA, Adelges tsu... read more
