Herbivory and Its Consequences

, : Herbivory and Its Consequences. Ecological Applications 3(1): 10-16

It is argued that herbivores often induce nonlinear or biphasic growth and development in plants. At low levels of herbivory, overall community responses show increases in production potential, whereas extreme herbivory causes extreme reduction in productivity. The transition between the 2 states defines a point of optimal herbivory.
