Olfactory recognition and behavioural avoidance of angiosperm nonhost volatiles by conifer‐inhabiting bark beetles
Abstract  1 When searching for suitable hosts in flight, especially in mixed forests, conifer‐inhabiting bark beetles will encounter not only suitable host trees and their odours, but also unsuitableExpand

Evaluation of herbivore-induced plant volatiles for monitoring green lacewings in Washington apple orchards
We evaluated five herbivore-induced plant volatiles plus a male-produced pheromone as attractants for adult green lacewings in Washington apple orchards in 2008. We found at least five attractants orExpand

Green Leaf Volatiles Interrupt Pheromone Response of Spruce Bark Beetle, Ips typographus
A synthetic mixture of nine green leaf volatiles (GLVs) including linalool was tested on antennae of Ips typographus (L.) with coupled gas chromatographic–electroantennographic detection (GC-EAD).Expand

Orchids Mimic Green-Leaf Volatiles to Attract Prey-Hunting Wasps for Pollination
An outstanding feature of orchids is the diversity of their pollination systems [1]. Most remarkable are those species that employ chemical deceit for the attraction of pollinators [2]. The orchidExpand

Behavioral responses for evaluating the attractiveness of specific tea shoot volatiles to the tea green leafhopper, Empoaca vitis
Abstract  The tea green leafhopper, Empoasca vitis Göthe, is one of the most serious insect pests of tea plantations in mainland China. Over the past decades, this pest has been controlled mainly byExpand

Semiochemistry of the Goldeneyed Lacewing Chrysopa oculata: Attraction of Males to a Male-Produced Pheromone
Gas chromatographic-electroantennographic detection (GC-EAD) experiments showed that antennae of males and females of the goldeneyed lacewing, Chrysopa oculata Say (Co. = Chrysopa), consistentlyExpand

Catching Ips duplicatus (Sahlberg) (Coleoptera: Scolytidae) with pheromone-baited traps: optimal trap type, colour, height and distance to infestation.
BACKGROUND Field trapping experiments were carried out to evaluate effective trap characteristics for maximising Ips duplicatus (Sahlberg) catches in pheromone-baited traps in China. RESULTSExpand

Leaf Volatiles from Nonhost Deciduous Trees: Variation by Tree Species, Season and Temperature, and Electrophysiological Activity in Ips typographus
The leaf volatiles emitted from four nonhost tree species of Ips typographus, i.e. Betula pendula, B. pubescens, Populus tremula, and Sambucus nigra, were collected outdoors by headspace sampling inExpand

A successful Case of Pheromone Mass Trapping of the Bark Beetle Ips duplicatus in a Forest Island, Analysed by 20-year Time-Series Data
The experimental testing of the hypothesis of population reduction by mass trapping with the establishment of treatment/control areas is a logistic problem on landscape scale. We suggest a possibleExpand

Male-Produced Pheromone of the Green Lacewing, Chrysopa nigricornis
Gas chromatographic–electroantennographic detection (GC–EAD) analysis showed that male antennae of the green lacewing, Chrysopa nigricornis Burmeister, the most common lacewing species in the U.S.Expand
