Meta-data from over 100 studies that examined induction of plant phenolic compounds following colonization by insects or microbial organisms (both pathogens and beneficials). This meta-data was used in a meta-analysis to observe that both insects and microbes consistently induce phenolic production. The meta-data covers publications that range from 2008 to 2017.

Resources in this dataset:

  • Resource Title: Meta-data for Phenolic Induction by Insects and Microbes.

    File Name: PhenolicInductionMetadata.xlsx

    Resource Description: Meta-data of phenolic induction, including plant host induction of total phenolics, flavonoids, and hydroxycinnamic acid derivatives, in response to insect and microbe (including pathogens and beneficials) from articles ranging from 2008 to 2017

Intended use

This dataset is to be used freely in future analyses, including meta-analyses, that can be performed on an occasional basis. As new manuscripts are published examining plant-insect and plant-microbe interactions, this meta-data can be included in novel, more up-to-date meta-analysis that cover beyond the limit of this dataset (the end of 2017). Likewise, different meta-analyses to examine other moderators can be performed with this data.

Use limitations

The included meta-data is limited according to practical purposes. In particular, only one time-point per induction was selected (generally the maximum response), and co-inductions were not included as meta-data (e.g. cases whereby two organisms colonized a plant at the same time).
