Oviposition and tarsal chemoreceptors of the cabbage root fly are stimulated by glucosinolates and host plant extracts
The role of glucosinolates in the oviposition behaviour of the cabbage root fly, Delia radicum (L.) (Diptera, Anthomyiidae) was investigated using egg counts and electrophysiological recordings fromExpand
Isothiocyanates Stimulating Oviposition by the Diamondback Moth, Plutella xylostella
Recognition of cabbage as a host plant for the diamondback moth (DBM) has previously been shown to depend on compounds that are extracted by soaking intact foliage in chloroform. Analysis of suchExpand
The host selection of the female spruce budworm Choristoneura fumiferana (Clem.), Tortricidae, for oviposition is influenced both by the shape and the composition of the substrate. Needle extractsExpand
Identification of glucosinolates on the leaf surface of plants from the Cruciferae and other closely related species.
Leaf-surface extracts prepared from 18 non-cultivated (wild) plant species, derived from the Capparidaceae, Cruciferae, Resedaceae and Tropaeolaceae were ranked for their ability to stimulateExpand
Contact chemoreception related to host selection and oviposition behaviour in the monarch butterfly, Danaus plexippus
Abstract. Behavioural events during host selection by ovipositing monarch butterflies (Danaus plexippus (L.), Danainae, Nymphalidae) include tapping the leaf surface with fore‐tarsi and touching thisExpand
Tarsal contact chemoreceptor response to glucosinolates and cardenolides mediating oviposition in Pieris rape
Abstract. Water‐soluble extracts of a host crucifer (Brassica oleracea L.) and non‐host crucifer (Erysimum cheiranthoides L.) and isolated pure cardenolides and glucosinolates were tested on PierisExpand
Leaf surface chemicals stimulating oviposition byPieris rapae (Lepidoptera: Pieridae) on cabbage
SummaryThe chemical stimulation of oviposition byPieris rapae on cabbage was investigated by leaf washing and extraction. Isolation of the stimulant by various chromatographic techniques wasExpand
Food discrimination and induction of preference for artificial diets in the tobacco hornworm, Manduca sexta
ABSTRACT. Feeding discrimination of Manduca larvae reared on leaves and a variety of artificial media was tested against leaves, various media, solvent fractions of leaves and media, and mediaExpand
Chemoecology 3 ( 1992 ) 33-38 33 Leaf surface chemicals stimulating oviposition by Pieris rapae ( Lepidoptera : Pieridae ) on cabbage
The chemical stimulation of oviposition by Pier& rapae on cabbage was investigated by leaf washing and extraction. Isolation of the stimulant by various chromatographic techniques was monitored by aExpand
Glucosinolates on the leaf surface perceived by insect herbivores: review of ambiguous results and new investigations
Herbivorous insects identify their host plants either by structural features, chemical cues, or a combination. Some insects probe the host leaf prior feeding or oviposition, other species useExpand
