Genetically engineered maize plants reveal distinct costs and benefits of constitutive volatile emissions in the field.

Abstract

Genetic manipulation of plant volatile emissions is a promising tool to enhance plant defences against herbivores. However, the potential costs associated with the manipulation of specific volatile synthase genes are unknown. Therefore, we investigated the physiological and ecological effects of transforming a maize line with a terpene synthase gene in… (More)
