Plants emit complex mixtures of volatile organic compounds from floral and vegetative tissue, especially after herbivore damage, so it is difficult to associate individual compounds with activity towards pollinators, herbivores or herbivore enemies. Attention has usually focused upon the biological activity of the most abundant compounds; but here, we detail a number of reports implicating minor volatiles in attractant or deterrent roles. This is not surprising given the exquisite sensitivity… CONTINUE READING
