The carbon-nutrient balance hypothesis predicts that when carbon availability is limited relative to nitrogen, such as in shaded plants, concentrations of carbon-based defense metabolites decrease relative to nitrogen, thus increasing leaf palatability (Bryant et al.
According to their "carbon-nutrient balance hypothesis," carbon reserves either will be accumulated or depleted depending on the balance of nutrient absorption and carbon fixation (photosynthesis).

The GDB hypothesis is similar to, and indeed encompasses many of the predictions of, the carbon-nutrient balance hypothesis (Herms and Mattson 1992).
