Plants can respond to herbivorous attack with induced defense mechanisms. Plant elicitors play vital roles in inducing the plant defense response against herbivores. In this study, we investigated the effect of (Z)-3-hexenol (z3HOL), an important component of green leaf volatiles (GLVs), on the induced defense against a tea geometrid (TG) Ectropis obliqua Prout in tea plants. We showed that treatment with z3HOL elicites increased levels of jasmonic acid (JA) and ethylene (ET) as well as of… CONTINUE READING
