Damage-induced resistance in sagebrush: volatiles are key to intra- and interplant communication.

Abstract

Airborne communication between individuals, called "eavesdropping" in this paper, can cause plants to become more resistant to herbivores when a neighbor has been experimentally clipped. The ecological relevance of this result has been in question, since individuals may be too far apart for this interaction to affect many plants in natural populations. We… (More)
