Transstadial and horizontal transfer of bacteria within a colony of Anopheles gambiae (Diptera: Culicidae) and oviposition response to bacteria-containing water.
Volatiles of Bracket Fungi Fomitopsis pinicola and Fomes fomentarius and Their Functions as Insect Attractants
Volatiles released from fruiting bodies of the polypores Fomitopsis pinicola and Fomes fomentarius were collected by entrainment and SPME techniques and analyzed by GC-MS, and β-Barbatene was identified for the first time in fungi.

It is shown that P. napi males transfer an anti–aphrodisiac to the female at mating, methyl–salicylate (MeS), which is a volatile substance which mated females emit when courted and which makes males quickly abandon them.

The study of apple volatiles eliciting an antennal response, together with a survey of the seasonal change in the release of these compounds, is the first step toward the identification of volatile mediating host-finding and oviposition in codling moth females.

Root extracts as well as commercial synthetic benzyl isothiocyanate exhibited rapid and strong bactericidal effect against oral pathogens involved in periodontal disease as wellAs against other Gram-negative bacteria, while Gram-positive bacteria mainly displayed growth inhibition or remained unaffected.
Induced Terpene Accumulation in Norway Spruce Inhibits Bark Beetle Colonization in a Dose-Dependent Manner
This is the first study demonstrating a dose-dependent relationship between induced terpenes and tree resistance to bark beetle colonization under field conditions, indicating that terpene induction may be instrumental in tree resistance.
