34 p, 168.9 KB Geographical variation in alkaloid production in Conium maculatum populations experiencing differential herbivory by Agonopterix alstroemeriana / Castells, Eva (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Farmacologia, de Terapèutica i de Toxicologia) ; Berhow, M.A. ; Vaughn, S.F. ; Berenbaum, M.R.
Conium maculatum, a Eurasian weed naturalized in North America, contains high concentrations of piperidine alkaloids, which act as chemical defenses against herbivores. In the United States, C. maculatum was largely free from herbivory until approximately 30 years ago, when it was re-associated via accidental introduction with a monophagous European herbivore, the oecophorid caterpillar Agonopterix alstroemeriana.

30 p, 171.5 KB Resistance of the generalist moth Trichoplusia ni (Noctuidae) to a novel chemical defense in the invasive plant Conium maculatum / Castells, Eva (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Farmacologia, de Terapèutica i de Toxicologia) ; Berenbaum, M.R.
Conium maculatum is an apiaceous species native to Eurasia that is highly toxic to vertebrates due to the presence of piperidine alkaloids, including coniine and γ-coniceine. More than 200 years after invading the United States this species remains mostly free from generalist insect herbivores. [...]
