Entomopathogenic nematodes (EPNs) play a role in indirect defenses of plants under attack by root herbivores. We have tested the chemotactic responses of 4 EPN species (Steinernema feltiae, S. carpocapsae, S. kraussei, and Heterorhabditis bacteriophora) to 5 compounds ([1] α-Pinene, [2] Terpinolene, [3] Bornyl acetate, [4] 2-Ethyl-hexanol, and [5] 2,(More)
Entomopathogenic nematodes (EPNs) play a role in indirect defense of plants under attack by root herbivores. Several investigations have shown that EPNs are attracted or repelled by various volatile compounds (VOCs) released from insect damaged plant roots. We hypothesized that the directional responses of EPNs to the VOCs would be affected by foraging(More)
