Populations of white clover (Trifolium repens L.) seedlings consisting of 11% cyanogenic and 89% acyanogenic phenotypes were exposed in the field at four locations to test for selective elimination of phenotypes by herbivores (mainly insects and other small pests). No significant relationship was found between phenotypes and elimination of seedlings by the herbivores.
