In the enriched carbon dioxide atmosphere expected in the next century, many species of herbivo- rous insects will confront less nutritious host plants that will induce both lengthened larval developmental times and greater mortality. The limited data currently available suggest that the effect of increased atmo- spheric CO 2 on herbivory will be not only highly species-specific but also specific to each insect-plant system. Several scenarios can be predicted, however: (1) local extinctions… Expand

Climate Change and Tritrophic Interactions: Will Modifications to Greenhouse Gas Emissions Increase the Vulnerability of Herbivorous Insects to Natural Enemies?
TLDR
This literature review shows that the higher levels of carbon dioxide, as predicted for the coming century, do not enhance the abundance or efficiency of natural enemies to locate hosts or prey in most published studies. Expand
Potential effects of elevated carbon dioxide on leaf-feeding forest insects
TLDR
The magnitude of changes in the phytochemistry, the sensitivity and adaptive capacity of insects to the poorer leaf quality, the differences in plant growth conditions and experimental methods, and the mediated effects of other environmental factors were all closely related to the final performance of insects. Expand
Potential effects of elevated carbon dioxide on leaf-feeding forest insects
The elevated concentration of atmospheric CO2 may result in a decline of leaf nutritional quality (especially N) and an increase in some kinds of defensive secondary components (such as phenolics).Expand
Insect–plant–pathogen interactions as shaped by future climate: effects on biology, distribution, and implications for agriculture
TLDR
The importance of additional research on more targeted, individual insect– plant scenarios at specific locations to fully understand the impact of a changing climate on insect–plant–pathogen interactions is underlined. Expand
Elevated carbon dioxide concentrations indirectly affect plant fitness by altering plant tolerance to herbivory
TLDR
No evidence that CO2 altered resistance is found, but plants grown in eCO2 were less tolerant of herbivory, and costs of tolerance in the form of reduced fitness of undamaged plants were detected in e CO2 but not aCO2 environments. Expand
Interacting effects of elevated CO2, nutrient availability and plant species on a generalist invertebrate herbivore
TLDR
It is concluded that elevated CO2 causes species-specific changes in the quality of plant tissues and consequently inChanges in the preferences of herbivores for plant species, which could result in changes in plant community composition. Expand
Plant–Insect Interactions in a Changing World
TLDR
It is argued that predicting the net effect of global change on plant–insect relationships requires a comprehensive understanding of the mechanisms that modulate the interaction strength between the plants and the insects, rather than on focusing on each partner individually. Expand
Anthropogenic increase in carbon dioxide compromises plant defense against invasive insects
TLDR
Findings suggest that predicted increases in soybean productivity under projected elevated CO2 levels may be reduced by increased susceptibility to invasive crop pests. Expand
Climate and atmospheric change impacts on sap-feeding herbivores: a mechanistic explanation based on functional groups of primary metabolites
TLDR
Investigating how increases in temperature (eT) and eCO2 affected the performance of the pea aphid via changes in amino acid concentrations in the model legume, lucerne, identified discrete functional groups of amino acids that underpinned the effects of climate and atmospheric change, in addition to plant genotype, on aphid performance.

The Effects of Enriched Carbon Dioxide Atmospheres on Plant—Insect Herbivore Interactions
TLDR
The results indicate that interactions between plants and herbivorous insects will be modified under the predicted CO2 conditions of the 21st century. Expand
Plant-insect herbivore interactions in elevated CO(2) environments.
TLDR
The doubled CO(2) levels anticipated for the next century will alter the dynamics of plant-insect herbivore interactions because herbivor consumption, growth and fitness are affected by the typically lower quality of plants grown under these conditions. Expand
Elevated atmospheric carbon dioxide: Effects on tritrophic interactions
TLDR
It was found that parasitized gypsy moth larvae on all diets grew more slowly and suffered reduced food processing efficiencies relative to control larvae, and the magnitude of growth suppression was greater under elevated CO[sub 2] conditions. Expand
Elevated atmospheric CO2: effects on phytochemistry, insect performance and insect‐parasitoid interactions
TLDR
The results suggest that CO2-induced changes in plant chemistry were buffered to the extent that effects on third trophic level interactions were weak to non-existent for the system examined in this study. Expand
Responses of Diciduous Trees to Elevated Atmospheric CO2: Productivity, Phytochemistry, and Insect Performance
TLDR
It is illustrated that tree productivity and chemistry, and the performance of associated insects, will change under CO2 atmospheres predicted for the next century, and relative increases in tree growth rates will be greatest for aspen and least for maple. Expand
Growth and feeding response of Pseudoplusia includens (Lepidoptera:Noctuidae) to host plants grown in controlled carbon dioxide atmospheres
TLDR
The impact of herbivores may increase as the level of atmospheric carbon dioxide rises, and leaves of soybean plants grown under three carbon dioxide regimes were fed to soybean looper larvae, which altered the leaf content of nitrogen and water and to the leaf-specific weight. Expand
Plant-Insect Herbivore Interactions in Elevated Atmospheric CO 2 : Quantitative Analyses and Guild Effects
TLDR
Interactions between insect herbivores and plants grown under conditions of ambient and elevated CO 2 were investigated, finding early instar larvae are restricted more by CO 2 enhancement than late instars and changes in development times are much more pronounced in young instars. Expand
EFFECTS OF CO2 AND NO3− AVAILABILITY ON DECIDUOUS TREES: PHYTOCHEMISTRY AND INSECT PERFORMANCE
TLDR
The effects of elevated atmospheric CO2 on terrestrial plant communities will not be homogeneous, but will depend on species composition and soil nutrient availability, which indicates that the magnitude of insect response elicited by resource-mediated shifts in host chemistry will depends on how levels of compounds with specific importance to insect fitness are affected.

Effects of changes in atmospheric carbon dioxide on the location of hosts by the moth, Cactoblastis cactorum
TLDR
Investigating whether changing the atmospheric CO2 concentration affected oviposition by Cactoblastis cactorum on its host, the cactus Opuntia stricta, suggests that fluctuations mask the much smaller CO2 signals generated by the plants, and suggests that those signals constitute an important component of the host identification process. Expand
Atmospheric CO2 and soil water availability: consequences for tree-insect interactions
TLDR
CO2 effects on forest trees will be mediated by the availability of water and that the direction and magnitude of responses will depend on the tree species involved, which will, in turn, affect patterns of host use by herbivorous insects. Expand
