Fusarium infection in maize: volatile induction of infected and neighboring uninfected plants has the potential to attract a pest cereal leaf beetle, Oulema melanopus.
Fusarium infection of maize leaves and/or roots through the soil can stimulate the emission of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). It is also well known that VOC emission from maize plants can repelExpand

Male signaling behavior and sexual selection in a wolf spider (Araneae: Lycosidae): a test for dual functions
Male signaling behaviors are often studied in a single context but may serve multiple functions (e.g., in male–male competition and female mate choice). We examined the issue of dual function maleExpand

Cereal crop volatile organic compound induction after mechanical injury, beetle herbivory (Oulema spp.), or fungal infection (Fusarium spp.).
Herbivory, mechanical injury or pathogen infestation to vegetative tissues can induce volatile organic compounds (VOCs) production, which can provide defensive functions to injured and uninjuredExpand

Volatile induction of three cereals: influence of mechanical injury and insect herbivory on injured plants and neighbouring uninjured plants
Herbivore damage and mechanical injury to leaves can stimulate the emission of volatile compounds. It is well known that emission of these volatile organic compounds (VOC) from plants can influenceExpand

Photosynthesis and Yield Reductions from Wheat Stem Sawfly (Hymenoptera: Cephidae) : Interactions with Wheat Solidness, Water Stress, and Phosphorus Deficiency
ABSTRACT The impact of herbivory on plants is variable and influenced by several factors, The current study examined causes of variation in the impact of larval stem mining by the wheat stemExpand

An insect countermeasure impacts plant physiology: midrib vein cutting, defoliation and leaf photosynthesis.
One type of specialised herbivory receiving little study even though its importance has frequently been mentioned is vein cutting. We examined how injury to a leaf's midrib vein impairs gas exchange,Expand

Injured and uninjured leaf photosynthetic responses after mechanical injury on Nerium oleander leaves, and Danaus plexippus herbivory on Asclepias curassavica leaves
Insect herbivory has variable effects on plant physiology; so greater understanding is needed about how injury alters photosynthesis on individual injured and uninjured leaves. Gas exchange andExpand

Male Biases for Male Characteristics in Females in Priapella olmecae and Xiphophorus helleri (Family Poeciliidae)
Preexisting receiver biases can affect the evolution of sexually selected traits once traits favored by such biases arise. Female guayacon olmeca, Priapefla olmecue, and green swordtail, XiphophorllsExpand

Synthetic Cis-Jasmone Exposure Induces Wheat and Barley Volatiles that Repel the Pest Cereal Leaf Beetle, Oulema melanopus L.
The plant semiochemical cis-jasmone primes/induces plant resistance that deters herbivores and attracts natural enemies. We studied the induction of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in winter wheatExpand

Impairment of Leaf Photosynthesis After Insect Herbivory or Mechanical Injury on Common Milkweed, Asclepias syriaca
Insect herbivory has variable consequences on plant physiology, growth, and repro- duction. In some plants, herbivory reduces photosynthetic rate (Pn) activity on remaining tissue of injured leaves.Expand
