Plant odorants interfere with detection of sex pheromone signals by male Heliothis virescens

Abstract

In many insects, mate finding relies on female-released sex pheromones, which have to be deciphered by the male olfactory system within an odorous background of plant volatiles present in the environment of a calling female.
