Tolerance and resistance measures collected from 9 genotypes of S. altissima grown across and nutrient gradient within the greenhouse. Resistance was estimated using the relative growth rates of herbivores placed on previously fed on (induced) vs. control (constitutive) plants. Tolerance of herbivory of each genotype is estimated by dividing the fitness of a damaged plant by the fitness of an undamaged plant
