Plants respond to insect herbivory by synthesizing and releasing complex blends of volatile compounds, which provide important host-location cues for insects that are natural enemies of herbivores. The effects of these volatile blends on herbivore behaviour have been investigated to only a limited extent, in part because of the assumption that herbivore-induced volatile emissions occur mainly during the light phase of the photoperiod. Because many moths—whose larvae are some of the most… 
Caterpillar-induced plant volatiles attract conspecific adults in nature
TLDR
This study provides the first identification of caterpillar-induced plant volatile that attract conspecific adult herbivores under natural conditions, challenging the expectation of herbivore avoidance of these induced volatiles.
Oviposition by a moth suppresses constitutive and herbivore-induced plant volatiles in maize
TLDR
It is demonstrated that egg deposition reduces the constitutive emission of volatiles and suppresses the typical burst of inducible volatile following mechanical damage and application of caterpillar regurgitant, a treatment that mimics herbivory.
Specific herbivore-induced volatiles defend plants and determine insect community composition in the field.
TLDR
It is found that inducible S-linalool attracted predators and parasitoids as well as chewing herbivores, but repelled the rice brown planthopper Nilaparvata lugens, a major pest, implying that the manipulation of volatile emissions in crops has great potential for the control of pest populations.
Influence of herbivore-induced changes in host plants on reproductive behaviours in Spodoptera littoralis
TLDR
The results suggest that de novo synthesized volatile compounds provide signalling cues to ovipositing female moths that the plants are under herbivore attack and can be used as reliable cues to avoid plants of low food quality and to reduce risk for competition and predation.
Herbivore-induced maize leaf volatiles affect attraction and feeding behavior of Spodoptera littoralis caterpillars
TLDR
It was confirmed that herbivore-induced VOCs emitted by maize plants are attractive to the larvae, but exposure to the volatiles decreased the growth rate of caterpillars at early developmental stages, indicating a trade-off between using available host plant signals and avoiding competitors and natural enemies.
Volatiles Emitted from Tea Plants Infested by Ectropis obliqua Larvae Are Attractive to Conspecific Moths
TLDR
It is found that tea plants infested by E. obliqua caterpillars for 24 h were more attractive to both virgin male and female E. ObliquA adults than were intact, uninfested tea plants; moreover, mated femaleE.
Caterpillar‐induced plant volatiles attract conspecific herbivores and a generalist predator
TLDR
The response of pandemis leafroller to herbivore‐induced plant volatiles (HIPVs) was so pronounced that over one thousand and seven hundred conspecific male and female adult herbivores were caught in traps baited with HIPVs in three‐day trapping period, challenging the current paradigm hypothesized that HIPVs repel Herbivores and question the indirect defensive function proposed for these compounds.
A herbivore-induced plant volatile interferes with host plant and mate location in moths through suppression of olfactory signalling pathways
TLDR
This study shows that olfactory sensory inhibition, which has previously been reported without reference to an animal’s ecology, can be at the core of coding of ecologically relevant odours and may be useful in the development or enhancement of push-pull strategies for sustainable agriculture.
Nocturnal herbivore-induced plant volatiles attract the generalist predatory earwig Doru luteipes Scudder
TLDR
This work investigated the olfactory behavioral responses of the night-active generalist predatory earwig Doru luteipes Scudder to diurnal and nocturnal volatile blends emitted by maize plants attacked by either a stem borer or a leaf-chewing caterpillar, both suitable lepidopteran prey.
Feeding Experience Affects the Behavioral Response of Polyphagous Gypsy Moth Caterpillars to Herbivore-induced Poplar Volatiles
TLDR
The results show that gypsy moth caterpillars display an innate behavioral response towards constitutive and herbivore-induced plant volatiles, but also that larval behavior is plastic and can be modulated by previous feeding experience.

How caterpillar-damaged plants protect themselves by attracting parasitic wasps.
TLDR
The studies on the phenomena of herbivore-induced emissions of volatiles in corn and cotton plants and studies conducted by others indicate that the clarity of the volatile signals is high, as they are unique for herbivor damage, produced in relatively large amounts, and easily distinguishable from background odors.
Diurnal cycle of emission of induced volatile terpenoids by herbivore-injured cotton plant.
TLDR
The diurnal pattern of emission of volatile terpenoids was determined by collecting and analyzing the volatile compounds emitted by cotton plants subjected to feeding damage by beet armyworm larvae in situ, and volatile emission was monitored continuously.
Herbivore-infested plants selectively attract parasitoids
TLDR
The production by phylogenetically diverse plant species and the exploitation by parasitoids of highly specific chemical signals, keyed to individual herbivore species, indicates that the interaction between plants and the natural enemies of the herbivores that attack them is more sophisticated than previously realized.
Exploitation of Herbivore-Induced Plant Odors by Host-Seeking Parasitic Wasps
TLDR
Corn seedlings release large amounts of terpenoid volatiles after they have been fed upon by caterpillars, and females of the parasitic wasp Cotesia marginiventris (Cresson) learn to take advantage of those plant-producedvolatiles to locate hosts when exposed to these volatile in association with hosts or host by-products.
Local and Systemic Production of Volatile Herbivore-induced Terpenoids: Their Role in Plant-carnivore Mutualism
TLDR
That plants repond to herbivory by producing terpenoid carnivore attractans should challenge phytochemists, plant biochemists and plant molecular biologists to investigate the signal-transduction pathway and the regulation mechanisms of this intriguing defense of plants.
Odour-mediated responses of phytophagous mites to conspecific and heterospecific competitors
TLDR
Investigating the response of one species of herbivore to odours emanating from cucumber plants infested by conspecific or heterospecific herbivores found that spider mites prefer clean plants over thrips-infested plants, since thrips are not only competitors, but are also known as intraguild predators of spider mite.
Jasmonate-inducible plant defences cause increased parasitism of herbivores
TLDR
It is shown that inducing plants with jasmonic acid increases parasitism of caterpillar pests in an agricultural field twofold, and elicitors of plant resistance may become useful in agriculture.
Effects of host plant leaf damage on cabbage looper moth attraction and oviposition
TLDR
An important role for damage induced plant volatiles in host location as well as host acceptance by Trichoplusia ni (Hubner) moths is suggested.
Induced Responses to Herbivory
TLDR
This comprehensive evaluation and synthesis of a rapidly-developing field provides state-of-the-discipline reviews, and highlights areas of research which might be productive, should appeal to a wide variety of theoretical and applied researchers.
An Elicitor of Plant Volatiles from Beet Armyworm Oral Secretion
TLDR
The compound N -(17-hydroxylinolenoyl)-l-glutamine (named here volicitin) was isolated from oral secretions of beet armyworm caterpillars and induced the seedlings to emit volatile compounds that attract parasitic wasps and natural enemies of the herbivores.
