Chiral specificity in responses by the bark beetleDendroctonus valens to host kairomones
The attraction of the red turpentine beetle,Dendroctonus valens, to the resin volatiles of its host,Pinus ponderosa, is elicited by three chiral monoterpenes. In field assays response was greatest toExpand

Tarsal chemoreception in the polyphagous grasshopper Schistocerca americana: behavioural assays, sensilla distributions and electrophysiology
ABSTRACT Behavioural and electrophysiological responses of Schistocerca americana (Drury) (Orthoptera: Acrididae) to chemical stimulation of the tarsi were investigated. Using restrained insects,Expand
