Abstract The headspace volatile compounds of the flowers of Lantana canescens were analysed by solid-phase microextraction coupled with GC-MS. A total of 96 volatile constituents were confirmed in the headspace accounted for about 97 % of the total composition. The headspace composition was characterized by a high number of monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes. The characteristic odour of the flowers can be attributed to the major components β-caryophyllene (16.3 %) and 1-octen-3-ol (9.6 %). 
HS–SPME–GC–MS and Electronic Nose Reveal Differences in the Volatile Profiles of Hedychium Flowers
The E-nose is proficient in discriminating Hedychium accessions of different volatile profiles in both quantitative and qualitative aspects, offering an accurate and rapid reference technique for future applications. Expand
Disentangling the path of pollinator attraction in temporarily colored flowers
The number of flower visitors and the visitation rate increased with increasing number of inflorescences and the number of yellow flowers (yellowing effect) contributed most to flower visitation at long and short distance, respectively. Expand


Headspace analysis of volatile flower scent constituents of bat-pollinated plants.
The flower scents of 11 bat-pollinated plant species have been investigated using the 'closed-loop-stripping'-adsorption technique, resulting in the identification of 49 compounds, comprising amongst others sulphur compounds, terpenoids and aliphatic compounds. Expand
Flower scent composition in Dianthus and Saponaria species (Caryophyllaceae) and its relevance for pollination biology and taxonomy
Floral fragrance compounds of seven Dianthus species and one Saponaria species (Caryophyllaceae) were studied using headspace adsorption technique followed by gas chromatography massspectrometry (GC-MS) to detect meaningful underlying dimensions and to visualize similarities between the investigated species.

Diversity and distribution of floral scent
It is concluded that floral scent chemistry is of little use for phylogenetic estimates above the genus level, whereas the distribution and combinations of floral scent compounds at species and subspecific levels is a promising field of investigation for the understanding of adaptations and evolutionary processes in angiosperms.

Use of solid-phase micro-extraction as a sampling technique in the determination of volatiles emitted by flowers, isolated flower parts and pollen.
The volatiles emitted by fresh whole flowers or isolated flower parts of mandarin, Citrus deliciosa Ten, were sampled using solid-phase micro-extraction (SPME), which requires smaller sample sizes and very short sampling times, which can minimize the formation of artifacts due to damage to the plant, and contaminations or loss of compounds.

Floral scent compounds of Amazonian Annonaceae species pollinated by small beetles and thrips.
Although Xylopia aromatica is pollinated principally by Thysanoptera and secondarily by small beetles, the five other species were pollinated by Nitidulidae and Staphylinidae only. Expand
The formation and function of plant volatiles: perfumes for pollinator attraction and defense.
The rapid progress in elucidating the biosynthetic pathways, enzymes, and genes involved in the formation of plant volatiles allows their physiology and function to be rigorously investigated at the molecular and biochemical levels. Expand
A Chemical Marker Proposal for the Lantana genus: Composition of the Essential Oils from the Leaves of Lantana radula and L. canescens
The high concentration of β-caryophyllene in the samples tested here and those in the literature make it a good candidate for a chemical marker for Lantana species, withβ-cubebene, elixene and β-phellandrene following as minor compounds identified more sporadically in this genus. Expand
Phenylethanoid and lignan glycosides from polar extracts of Lantana, a genus of verbenaceous plants widely used in traditional herbal therapies.
A new phenylethanoid glycoside, raduloside, and lignan glycosides, Radulignan, were identified along with the known compounds alyssonOSide, arenarioside, calceolarioside E, isonuomioside, samioside and verbascoside. Expand
Nursery pollination by a moth in Silene latifolia: the role of odours in eliciting antennal and behavioural responses.
The results show that the most common and abundant floral scent compounds in S. latifolia, lilac aldehydes, attracted most of the moths tested, indicating a specific adaptation of H. bicruris to its host plant. Expand
Practical applications of research into the regulation of plant volatile emission.
Pioneering attempts to alter plant volatile profiles have uncovered the complexity of networks and their regulation, and have built new avenues for future successful metabolic engineering. Expand
