Aphids, through their close association with plants, cause systemic release of semiochemicals. These may have negative effects on subsequent aphid colonisation and can also have positive roles with insects that are antagonistic to aphid development, for example parasitoids. One of the semiochemicals involved in host selection by aphids is methyl salicylate, and since this compound was shown to have a role as a plant stress signal, the hypothesis that aphids might facilitate identification of… CONTINUE READING
