The invasive weed Rumex confertus Willd. (mossy sorrel) is fed upon and severely defoliated by Gastrophysa viridula Deg. (dock leaf beetle). We report volatile organic compound (VOC) induction when one leaf on R. confertus was damaged by G. viridula adults to better understand plant responses to herbivory. The R. confertus volatile blend induced by G. viridula feeding included three green leaf volatiles (GLVs; (Z)-3-hexenal, (Z)-3-hexen-1-ol, (Z)-3-hexen-1-yl acetate) and terpenes (linalool, s… Expand
