Herbivore-induced plant volatiles induce an indirect defence in neighbouring plants

Abstract

1 Many plant species respond to herbivory with increased emission of volatile organic compounds (VOCs): these attract carnivorous arthropods and thereby function as an indirect defence mechanism. Whether neighbouring plants can ‘eavesdrop’ on such airborne cues and tailor their defences accordingly, remains controversial. 2 We used Lima bean plants… (More)
