Induced susceptibility is evident when larvae of Pieris rapae feed on wild radish and induce glucosinolates and perhaps other volatile compounds that are used by the specialist flea beetle Phyllotreta sp. to locate its host, a response that results in increased beetle colonization, oviposition, and plant damage (Agrawal and Sherriffs 2001). Induced susceptibility can also arise when one herbivore deactivates the preformed defenses of a plant thus providing another herbivore the opportunity to feed.

1995). Although early-season feeding is clearly associated with competitive superiority in many plant-mediated interactions (Denno et al. 1995), there are admittedly no studies that have examined possible carryover effects of late-season inducers on spring feeders. However, feeding by the spring defoliator Epirrita autumnata induces higher concentrations of total phenolic compounds in mountain birch (Betula pubescens) that carry over to the next season with adverse intraspecific effects on fecundity (Kaitaniemi et al.
