Glucosinolates on the leaf surface perceived by insect herbivores: review of ambiguous results and new investigations


Herbivorous insects identify their host plants either by structural features, chemical cues, or a combination. Some insects probe the host leaf prior feeding or oviposition, other species use olfactorial cues or compounds somewhere on the surface.
