Male-Produced Sex Pheromone of the Cerambycid Beetle Hedypathes betulinus: Chemical Identification and Biological Activity
We identified, synthesized, determined the diel periodicity of release, and tested the bioactivity of components of the male-produced sex pheromone of Hedypathes betulinus (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae:Expand
Alarm pheromone system of stink bug Piezodorus guildinii (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae)
Os compostos utilizados pelo percevejo da soja Piezodorus guildinii como feromonio de alarme foram caracterizados atraves da analise da composicao quimica das secrecoes da glândula metatoracica dosExpand
Enantioselective synthesis and absolute configuration of the sex pheromone of Hedypathes betulinus (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae)
The male-produced sex pheromone of Hedypathes betulinus was identified as a mixture of (E)-6,10dimethyl-5,9-undecadien-2-one (geranylacetone) (1) and its respective alcohol (2) and acetate (3).Expand
Identification of Male-Specific Chiral Compound from the Sugarcane Weevil Sphenophorus levis
Comparative gas chromatographic analyses of airborne volatiles produced by males and females of the sugarcane weevil Sphenophorus levis, showed one male-specific compound. Gas chromatography–massExpand
Geographic variation of sex pheromone and mitochondrial DNA in Diatraea saccharalis (Fab., 1794) (Lepidoptera: Crambidae).
(9Z,11E)-hexadecadienal and (Z11)-hexadecenal, the main sex pheromone components of the sugarcane borer, Diatraea saccharalis, were identified and quantified from four Brazilian and one ColombianExpand
Volatile Organic Compounds of Conspecific-Damaged Eucalyptus benthamii Influence Responses of Mated Females of Thaumastocoris peregrinus
Plants respond to herbivory by synthesizing and releasing novel blends of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Natural enemies are attracted to these VOCs, but little is known about the effects ofExpand
Field responses of stink bugs to the natural and synthetic pheromone of the Neotropical brown stink bug, Euschistus heros (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae)
Abstract.The synthetic racemic mixture of methyl 2,6,10‐trimethyltridecanoate, a component of the male produced pheromone of Euschistus heros (F.) (Heteroptera, Pentatomidae), was attractive toExpand
Enhancing Plant Resistance at the Seed Stage: Low Concentrations of Methyl Jasmonate Reduce the Performance of the Leaf Miner Tuta absoluta but do not Alter the Behavior of its Predator Chrysoperla
Plants express inducible direct and indirect defenses in response to herbivory. The plant hormone jasmonic acid (JA) and related signaling compounds referred to as jasmonates play a central role inExpand
Sex Pheromone of Lonomia obliqua: Daily Rhythm of Production, Identification, and Synthesis
The sex pheromone of Lonomia obliqua Walker (Lepidoptera: Saturniidae) was studied in the laboratory. All female calling occurred during the scotophase. Most females (70.6%) called first within 24 hrExpand
