Plants interact simultaneously with a diversity of visitors, including herbivores and pollinators. Correlations among traits associated
with herbivory and pollination may constrain the degree to which plants can evolve in response to any one interactor. Using the
distylous plant, Gelsemium sempervirens, we tested the hypothesis that traits typically associated with pollination (distyly) and herbivore
resistance (secondary compounds) were phenotypically correlated and examined how these traits influenced plant interactions with
