Vanillin, vanillic acid, and other related compounds are chemoattractants either for nematodes or arthropods. We tested vanillin, vanillic acid, and 2,4-dihydroxybenzaldehyde in an in vitro bioassay system for their ability to attractPellioditis pellio males and females. Females were not attracted to any of the three compounds tested. Males responded to vanillin and vanillic acid, but not to 2,4-dihydroxybenzaldehyde. Males responded to vanillin and vanillic acid when these compounds were… Expand
Free Phenols in Maize Pith and Their Relationship with Resistance to Sesamia nonagrioides (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) Attack
TLDR
The vanillic acid showed a decreased tendency after silking, suggesting this acid could act as a chemoattractant for S. nonagrioides larvae or adults, and higher quantities of p-coumaric in the pith could contribute to general resistance to stem borer attack. Expand
Wheat bulb fly, Delia coarctata, larval attraction to phenolic components of host‐plant root exudates
TLDR
Using arena bioassays to identify further compounds involved in the host‐finding process of wheat bulb fly larvae adds more detail to the subterranean chemical ecology of this species, allowing a behavioural sequence for host‐plant orientation by WBF larvae to be proposed. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest the presence of at least two types of chemoattractant for this species and that at least one heterosexual chemoATTractant is betweenMr 12,000 and 25,000. Expand

TLDR
Both attractancy and coiling behavior in male soybean cyst nematode were elicited by authentic vanillic acid. Expand
Species-specific natural products of adult male leaf-footed bugs (Hemiptera: Heteroptera)
TLDR
It is proposed that males were favored as the emitters of attractive signals by sexual selection, whereas the specificity of the signal is the result of natural selection against hybridization. Expand
