Induced volatile terpenes have been commonly reported among diverse agricultural plant species, but less commonly investigated in odorous plant species. Odorous plants synthesize and constitutively store relatively large amounts of volatiles, and these may play a role in defense against herbivores. We examined the effect of herbivory and methyl jasmonate (MeJA) exposure on the release of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the marsh elder, Iva frutescens, which contains numerous constitutive… 
Variation in Herbivore and Methyl Jasmonate-Induced Volatiles Among Genetic Lines of Datura wrightii
Many plant species produce volatile organic compounds after being damaged by herbivores. The production of volatiles also may be induced by exposing plants to the plant hormone, jasmonic acid, or its
Foliar Terpene Chemotypes and Herbivory Determine Variation in Plant Volatile Emissions
TLDR
It was found that foliar chemistry influenced differences in the composition of terpene emissions, but those emissions were minimal in intact plants, suggesting the main origin of emissions is the stored terpenes and not de novo biosynthesized volatiles.
Herbivore species, infestation time, and herbivore density affect induced volatiles in tea plants
TLDR
Overall, the leafhoppers and geometrids induced significantly different volatiles from tea plants, while the HIPV profiles varied with a circadian rhythm and were similar at different herbivore densities.
Herbivore species, infestation time, and herbivore density affect induced volatiles in tea plants
TLDR
Overall, the leafhoppers and geometrids induced significantly different volatiles from tea plants, while the HIPV profiles varied with a circadian rhythm and were similar at different herbivore densities.
Making scents of defense: do fecal shields and herbivore-caused volatiles match host plant chemical profiles?
TLDR
Chemical profiles of shields and volatile emissions are influenced by the amounts and volatilities of compounds present in the host plant, and the implications are explored for the chemical ecology of both the plant and the insect.
Minor effects of two elicitors of insect and pathogen resistance on volatile emissions and parasitism of Spodoptera frugiperda in Mexican maize fields
TLDR
Testing maize seedlings treated with methyl jasmonate and benzo-(1,2,3)-thiadiazole-7-carbothioic acid S-methyl ester revealed that BTH induced significant resistance against Bipolaris maydis, a major pathogen in the experimental maize fields.
Different headspace profiles in wild crucifer species in response to Plutella xylostella herbivory and exogenous jasmonic acid application
TLDR
Compared volatiles of two crucifer species, Cardamine impatiens and Lepidium virginicum, in response to Plutella xylostella larval feeding and exogenous application of JA, over the entire period of time when induced changes were detectable.
Are wild insectivorous birds attracted to methyl-jasmonate-treated Pyrenean oak trees?
TLDR
Results show that neither insectivorous adult birds nor inexperienced nestlings were attracted to trees treated with MeJa, and further studies are needed to disentangle whether the differences in the emission of volatiles between herbivore-infested trees and MeJa-treated trees can explain this lack of attraction to Me Ja-treated Pyrenean oak trees.
Fatty Acid-Derived Signals that Induce or Regulate Plant Defenses Against Herbivory
TLDR
The mechanisms by which the green leaf compounds and the elicitors induce defensive reactions in plants are not understood, although it appears that they affect the octadecanoid pathway in different ways.
Emission and Function of Volatile Organic Compounds in Response to Abiotic Stress
Plants accumulate a diverse array of natural products, which are thought to be involved in their interactions with the environment. These chemicals function in plant communications with microbes,

Jasmonic Acid and Herbivory Differentially Induce Carnivore-Attracting Plant Volatiles in Lima Bean Plants
TLDR
Chemical as well as behavioral analyses demonstrate that spider mite damage and JA treatment have similar, although not identical, effects on volatile induction in Lima bean plants.
Diurnal cycle of emission of induced volatile terpenoids by herbivore-injured cotton plant.
TLDR
The diurnal pattern of emission of volatile terpenoids was determined by collecting and analyzing the volatile compounds emitted by cotton plants subjected to feeding damage by beet armyworm larvae in situ, and volatile emission was monitored continuously.
Systemically Induced Plant Volatiles Emitted at the Time of “Danger”
TLDR
Emission of systemically induced volatiles in Brussels sprouts might function as an induced defense that is activated only when needed, i.e., at the time of caterpillar attack, so plants may adopt a flexible management of inducible defensive resources to minimize costs of defense and to maximize fitness in response to unpredictable herbivore attack.
EXOGENOUS METHYL JASMONATE INDUCES VOLATILE EMISSIONS IN COTTON PLANTS
TLDR
The results indicate that treatment of cotton with MeJA can directly and systemically induce the emission of volatiles that may serve as odor cues in the host-search behavior of natural enemies.
Herbivore-Induced Volatile Production by Arabidopsis thaliana Leads to Attraction of the Parasitoid Cotesia rubecula: Chemical, Behavioral, and Gene-Expression Analysis
TLDR
It is shown that adult females of Cotesia rubecula, a specialist parasitic wasp of Pieris rapae caterpillars, are attracted to P. rapae-infested Arabidopsis plants, and genes from major biosynthetic pathways involved in volatile production are induced by caterpillar feeding.
De Novo Biosynthesis of Volatiles Induced by Insect Herbivory in Cotton Plants
TLDR
Analysis of volatiles from artificially damaged plants, with and without beet armyworm-damaged and -undamaged control plants, demonstrated that the application of caterpillar oral secretions increased both the production and release of several volatile that are synthesized de novo in response to insect feeding.

TLDR
This study studied the role of methyl salicylate (MeSA) as part of the volatile blend in the foraging behavior of the predatory mite Phytoseiulus persimilis by using a Y-tube olfactometer and found an important role for MeSA.
Direct Defense or Ecological Costs: Responses of Herbivorous Beetles to Volatiles Released by Wild Lima Bean (Phaseolus lunatus)
  • M. Heil
  • Biology, Medicine
    Journal of Chemical Ecology
  • 2004
TLDR
Release of HIPV deterred Chrysomelid herbivores and, thus, acted as a direct defense, and whether or not HIPV released by induced plants attracted herbivorous Curculionidae, thus incurring ecological costs, varied among plants.
Quantitative relationships between induced jasmonic acid levels and volatile emission in Zea mays during Spodoptera exigua herbivory
TLDR
The results strongly support a role for JA in the regulation of insect-induced volatile emission but also suggest that ethylene perception regulates the magnitude of volatile emission during herbivory.
C6-Green leaf volatiles trigger local and systemic VOC emissions in tomato.
TLDR
Labeling studies showed that de novo synthesis was not required for monoterpene or sesquiterpene release immediately following chemical treatment or insect feeding, and comparative measurements were made between aldehyde doses applied to the plant and levels naturally released from leaves with insect damage.
