Monoterpenes synthesized and released by emitting vegetation can be taken up by neighboring non-emitting plants, but the uptake capacity of non-emitting species has not been studied extensively. We investigated the foliar uptake potential of the hydrophobic monoterpene limonene in 13 species of contrasting leaf structure and lipid content to determine the structural and chemical controls of monoterpene uptake. Leaf dry mass per unit area (M(A,D)) varied 6.5-fold, dry to fresh mass ratio (D(F… CONTINUE READING
