Mechanisms of plant defense against insect herbivores
Plants respond to herbivory through various morphological, biochemicals, and molecular mechanisms to counter/offset the effects of herbivore attack. The biochemical mechanisms of defense against theExpand

Role of salicylic acid in induction of plant defense system in chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.)
Salicylic acid (SA), a plant hormone plays an important role in induction of plant defense against a variety of biotic and abiotic stresses through morphological, physiological and biochemicalExpand

Jasmonic Acid-Mediated-Induced Resistance in Groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.) Against Helicoverpa armigera (Hubner) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)
Jasmonic acid (JA) acts as a signal molecule to induce resistance in plants against herbivores and its levels are elevated in plants after wounding or insect damage. Groundnut is an important crop inExpand

Defensive Responses in Groundnut Against Chewing and Sap-Sucking Insects
Induced resistance is one of the important components of host plant resistance to insects. We studied the induced defensive responses in groundnut genotypes with different levels of resistance to theExpand

Herbivore induced plant volatiles: Their role in plant defense for pest management
Plants respond to herbivory through different defensive mechanisms. The induction of volatile emission is one of the important and immediate response of plants to herbivory. Herbivore-induced plantExpand

Effect of plant secondary metabolites on legume pod borer, Helicoverpa armigera
The effect of various flavonoids, lectins and phenyl β-d-glucoside on larval survival, weights and the activities of digestive (total serine protease and trypsin) and detoxifying [esterase andExpand

Herbivore- and Elicitor- Induced Resistance in Groundnut to Asian armyworm, Spodoptera litura (Fab.) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)
Induced defense was studied in three groundnut genotypes ICGV 86699 (resistant), NCAc 343 (resistant) and TMV 2 (susceptible) in response to Spodoptera litura infestation and jasmonic acid (JA)Expand

Differential defensive response of groundnut germplasms to Helicoverpa armigera (Hubner) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)
Host plant resistance is one of the most economic and environment friendly method for pest management and, therefore, the present study was undertaken on induction of resistance against HelicoverpaExpand

Elevated CO2 influences host plant defense response in chickpea against Helicoverpa armigera
Global atmospheric concentration of CO2 is likely to increase from 350 to 750 ppm over the next 100 years. The present studies were undertaken to understand the effects of elevated CO2 on enzymaticExpand

Induced resistance in groundnut by jasmonic acid and salicylic acid through alteration of trichome density and oviposition by Helicoverpa armigera (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)
Jasmonic acid (JA) and salicylic acid (SA) play an important role in activating plant defensive responses against insect pests. In these experiments, trichome density increased in groundnut plants byExpand
