Abstract

Evaluates the effects of four treatments on the ability of Viburnum dentatum to resist herbivory from a leaf beetle that is a new landscape pest. Treating V. dentatum with imidacloprid decreased feeding by the leaf beetle. Treating V. dentatum with jasmonic acid, harpin, and paclobutrazol had no impact on the leaf beetle.
