Role of glucosinolates in insect-plant relationships and multitrophic interactions.
Glucosinolates present classical examples of plant compounds affecting insect-plant interactions. They are found mainly in the family Brassicaceae, which includes several important crops. More thanExpand

Plant interactions with multiple insect herbivores: from community to genes.
Every plant is a member of a complex insect community that consists of tens to hundreds of species that belong to different trophic levels. The dynamics of this community are critically influenced byExpand

Chemical complexity of volatiles from plants induced by multiple attack.
The attack of a plant by herbivorous arthropods can result in considerable changes in the plant's chemical phenotype. The emission of so-called herbivore-induced plant volatiles (HIPV) results in theExpand

Feed Conversion, Survival and Development, and Composition of Four Insect Species on Diets Composed of Food By-Products
A large part of the environmental impact of animal production systems is due to the production of feed. Insects are suggested to efficiently convert feed to body mass and might therefore form a moreExpand

Whiteflies interfere with indirect plant defense against spider mites in Lima bean
Plants under herbivore attack are able to initiate indirect defense by synthesizing and releasing complex blends of volatiles that attract natural enemies of the herbivore. However, little is knownExpand

Antennal sensilla of two parasitoid wasps: A comparative scanning electron microscopy study
Two closely related parasitoid wasp species, Cotesia glomerata (L.) and Cotesia rubecula (Marshall) (Hymenoptera:Braconidae), are different in their associative learning of plant odors. To provide aExpand

Helping plants to deal with insects: the role of beneficial soil-borne microbes.
Several soil-borne microbes such as mycorrhizal fungi and plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria can help plants to deal with biotic and abiotic stresses via plant growth promotion and inducedExpand

Growth performance and feed conversion efficiency of three edible mealworm species (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae) on diets composed of organic by-products.
Insects receive increasing attention as an alternative protein-rich food source for humans. Producing edible insects on diets composed of organic by-products could increase sustainability. InExpand

Attraction of Colorado Potato Beetle to Herbivore-Damaged Plants During Herbivory and After Its Termination
Large, undamaged potato plants (>60 cm, 5–6 weeks old) attract the Colorado potato beetle (Leptinotarsa decemlineata), but small potato plants (15–25 cm high, 2–3 weeks old) do not. However, smallExpand
