Biogenic volatile organic compound (BVOC) emissions were studied using vegetation enclosure experiments. Particular emphasis was given to sesquiterpene compounds (SQT), although monoterpenes (MT) were also characterized. SQT were detected in emissions from seven (out of eight) pine species that were examined. Thirteen SQT compounds were identified; the most abundant ones were beta-caryophyllene, alpha-bergamotene, beta-farnesene, and alpha-farnesene, with emission rates increasing exponentially… CONTINUE READING
