Direct and indirect defences against feeding induced by chewing (Spodoptera littoralis) and piercing-sucking (Tetranychus urticae) herbivores, as well as components of signal transduction, were investigated in the model legume Medicago truncatula. Emitted volatiles, representing a mechanism of indirect defence, were measured and identified by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC-MS). As elements of direct defence, the accumulation of phenolic compounds and of reactive oxygen species (ROS… CONTINUE READING
