Plants may “eavesdrop” on volatile organic compounds (VOCs) released by herbivore-attacked neighbors to activate defenses before being attacked themselves. Transcriptome and signal cascade analyses of VOC-exposed plants suggest that plants eavesdrop to prime direct and indirect defenses and to hone competitive abilities. Advances in research on VOC biosynthesis and perception have facilitated the production of plants that are genetically “deaf” to particular VOCs or “mute” in elements of their… Expand
The Role of Volatiles in Plant–Plant Interactions
TLDR
This chapter summarizes the current knowledge about the role of VOCs in plant-to-plant interactions and point out gaps in existing research, in particular the need for further studies under natural conditions. Expand
Within-plant signaling by volatiles leads to induction and priming of an indirect plant defense in nature
TLDR
Herbivore-induced VOCs elicit a defensive response in undamaged plants (or parts of plants) under natural conditions, and they function as external signal for within-plant communication, thus serving also a physiological role in the systemic response of a plant to local damage. Expand

TLDR
Hormonal crosstalk may allow plants to integrate different volatile cues to respond specifically and appropriately to environmental change, and may suppress plant defenses through negative hormonal crosStalk. Expand
From the Lab Bench to the Forest: Ecology and Defence Mechanisms of Volatile-Mediated ‘Talking Trees’
TLDR
This chapter gives an overview of VOC-based plant communication, in which plants that eavesdrop on VOC signals emitted from neighbouring herbivore-damaged plants increase their defence. Expand
Biosynthesis, function and metabolic engineering of plant volatile organic compounds.
Plants synthesize an amazing diversity of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that facilitate interactions with their environment, from attracting pollinators and seed dispersers to protectingExpand
The evolutionary context for herbivore-induced plant volatiles: beyond the 'cry for help'.
TLDR
Molecular advances in understanding of HIPV signaling and biosynthesis is enabling the creation of HIPv-'mute' and possibly HIPV-'deaf' plants, which could be used for unbiased examination of the fitness value of HIPVs emissions under natural conditions. Expand
Acquired immunity to herbivory and allelopathy caused by airborne plant emissions.
TLDR
It is asked whether more plants eavesdrop on infochemical cues, and if these cues that allow them to adjust their defenses to suit their risk also increase their fitness as a result. Expand
The roles of plant sesquiterpenes in defense against biotic and abiotic stresses
TLDR
In this thesis, the biological significances of the C15 sesquiterpene volatiles in plant defense against biotic and abiotic stresses are investigated by genetically manipulating nonproducing plants with the respective sesQuiterpenes biosynthetic genes. Expand
Microbe-induced plant volatiles.
TLDR
Knowing the molecular mechanisms of MIPV synthesis in plants and how plant pathogen effectors manipulate their biosynthesis are discussed will help broaden the understanding of plant-microbe interactions and should facilitate the development of new emerging techniques for sustainable plant disease management. Expand
Priming defense genes and metabolites in hybrid poplar by the green leaf volatile cis-3-hexenyl acetate.
TLDR
Woody plants can detect and use z3HAC as a signal to prime defenses before actually experiencing damage, and GLVs may have important ecological functions in arboreal ecosystems. Expand

Volatile signaling in plant-plant-herbivore interactions: what is real?
TLDR
Field studies have demonstrated repeatable increases in the herbivore resistance of plants growing downwind of damaged plants and transcriptional changes that occur in plants in response to certain volatiles. Expand
Plant–plant interactions mediated by volatiles emitted from plants infested by spider mites
TLDR
It is shown that, under laboratory conditions, volatiles emitted from T. urticae-infested lima bean plants activate transcription of genes encoding pathogenesis-related proteins and phenylalanine ammonia-lyase in leaves of intact neighboring plants, indicating that intact lima Bean plants may be responsive to volatile signals. Expand
Herbivory-induced volatiles elicit defence genes in lima bean leaves
TLDR
It is shown that uninfested lima bean leaves activate five separate defence genes when exposed to volatiles from conspecific leaves infested with T. urticae, but not when exposed with volatile from artificially wounded leaves. Expand

TLDR
The presence of methyl jasmonate in the atmosphere of chambers containing plants from three species of two families, Solanaceae and Fabaceae, results in the accumulation of proteinase inhibitors in leaves of all three species, demonstrating that interplant communication can occur from leaves of one species of plant to leaves of another species to activate the expression of defensive genes.

Jasmonate-induced responses are costly but benefit plants under attack in native populations.

TLDR
In populations with intermediate rates of attack, induced plants were attacked less often by herbivores and survived to produce more seed than did their uninduced counterparts, and inducibility allows this species to forgo these costs when the defenses are unnecessary. Expand
Airborne signalling by methyl salicylate in plant pathogen resistance
TLDR
It is concluded that methyl salicylate may function as an airborne signal which acitvates disease resistance and the expression of defence-related genes in neighbouring plants and in the healthy tissues of the infected plant. Expand

Herbivore-induced volatiles induce the emission of ethylene in neighboring lima bean plants.
TLDR
Exposure to Tetranychus urticae-induced volatiles activates the transcription of the genes involved in the biosynthesis of ethylene and polyamines from SAM and suggests that ethylene biosynthesis might be regulated by signaling pathways involving JA, SA and ethylene in T. uricae-infested leaves.

TLDR
It is demonstrated that HI-VOC induction by Z-3-ol is synergized by the phytohormone ethylene, and it is suggested that ethylene plays a synergistic role in plant–plant signaling mediated by green leaf volatiles. Expand
