Abstract: Plants respond locally and systemically to herbivore attack. Most of the research conducted on plant-herbivore relationships at elemental and molecular levels have focused on the elemental composition or/and certain molecular compounds or specific families of defensive metabolites showing that herbivores tend to select plant individuals or species with higher nutrient concentrations and to avoid those with higher levels of defensive compounds. We performed stoichiometric and metabolomics, local and systemic, analyses in two subspecies of Pinus sylvestris under the attack by the caterpillars of the pine processionary moth, an important pest in the Mediterranean Basin. Both pine subspecies responded locally to folivory mainly by increasing the relative concentrations of terpenes and some phenolics. Systemic responses differed between subspecies and most of the metabolites presented intermediate concentrations between those of the affected parts and unattacked trees. Our results support the hypothesis that foliar nutrient concentrations are not a key factor of an alleged plant selection by adult female processionary moths for oviposition since folivory was not associated with any of the elements analyzed. Phenolic compounds did not generally increase in the attacked trees questioning thus their commonly proposed induction by folivory attack and their anti-feeding properties. Herbivory attack produced a general systemic shift in pines, including both primary and secondary metabolisms, that was less intense and chemically different from the local responses. Local pine responses were similar between subspecies while systemic responses were more distant between them.
