I am looking for information on red-leaved varieties of common tree species,
particulary on the copper beech (Fagus sylvatica purpurea). I am particularly
interested in the patterns of herbivore attack, compared to attack on the
standard variety (eg Fagus slyvatica), although any information (genetic,
molecular, historical etc) or leads would be very useful.

Many thanks in advance,

Sam Brown
