Interactions between plant genome size, nutrients and herbivory by rabbits, molluscs and insects on a temperate grasslandAngiosperm genome sizes (GS) vary ca 2400-fold. Recent research has shown that GS influences plant abundance, and plant competition. There are also tantalizing reports that herbivores may select plants as food dependent on their GS. To test the hypothesis that GS plays a role in shaping plant communities under herbivore...
