  1. Defense in the aeolidoidean genus phyllodesmium (gastropoda).

    Journal of Chemical Ecology 40(9):1013 (2014) PMID 25244950

    We report results of the first chemical investigation of P. briareum, as well as a re-investigation of P. longicirrum and P. magnum. Briarane diterpenes were isolated from P. briareum, and their origin could be traced to its prey organism Briareum sp. (Octocorallia). Considerable enrichment of the s...
  2. Ambient has Become Strained. Identification of Acacia dealbata Link Volatiles Interfering with Germination and Early Growth of Native Specie...

    Journal of Chemical Ecology 40(9):1051 (2014) PMID 25260655

    We hypothesized that volatile organic compounds (VOCs) released from flowers, leaves, litter, or a mixture of treatments exert inhibitory effects on the natives Trifolium subterraneum, Lolium multiflorum, Medicago sativa, and also on its own seeds. We reported that VOCs from flowers significantly re...
  3. Field evaluation of the bacterial volatile derivative 3-pentanol in priming for induced resistance in pepper.

    Journal of Chemical Ecology 40(8):882 (2014) PMID 25149655

    We investigated the ISR capacity of VOCs and derivatives collected from strain IN937a against bacterial spot disease caused by Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. vesicatoria in pepper. Of 15 bacterial VOCs and their derivatives, 3-pentanol, which is a C8 amyl alcohol reported to be a component of sex pherom...
  4. The evolution of ethylene signaling in plant chemical ecology.

    Journal of Chemical Ecology 40(7):700 (2014) PMID 24997626

    We provide a synthesis of the role of ethylene in the context of plant ecology and evolution, and a prospectus for future research in this area. We focus on the regulatory function of ethylene in multi-organismal interactions. In general, plant interactions with different types of organisms lead to...
  5. Symptomless endophytic fungi suppress endogenous levels of salicylic acid and interact with the jasmonate-dependent indirect defense traits ...

    Journal of Chemical Ecology 40(7):816 (2014) PMID 25015691

    We used wild Lima bean (Phaseolus lunatus) plants that were experimentally colonized with one of three strains of natural endophytes (Bartalinia pondoensis, Fusarium sp., or Cochliobolus lunatus) to investigate the effects of fungal colonization on the endogenous levels of salicylic acid (SA) and ja...
  6. Identification and biosynthesis of novel male specific esters in the wings of the tropical butterfly, Bicyclus martius sanaos.

    Journal of Chemical Ecology 40(6):549 (2014) PMID 24894159 PMCID PMC4090810

    We report the identification and biosynthetic pathways of several novel esters from the wings of male B. martius sanaos. We found that the volatile compounds in this male butterfly were similar to female-produced moth sex pheromones. Components associated with the male wing androconial areas were id...
  7. The inverted phantom giant.

    Journal of Chemical Ecology 40(5):417 (2014) PMID 24832064

  8. Nectar minerals as regulators of flower visitation in stingless bees and nectar hoarding wasps.

    Journal of Chemical Ecology 40(5):476 (2014) PMID 24888745

    Various nectar components have a repellent effect on flower visitors, and their adaptive advantages for the plant are not well understood. Persea americana (avocado) is an example of a plant that secretes nectar with repellent components. It was demonstrated that the mineral constituents of this nec...
  9. Involvement of a specific chemosensory protein from Bactrocera dorsalis in perceiving host plant volatiles.

    Journal of Chemical Ecology 40(3):267 (2014) PMID 24627092

    Insects have evolved many physiological and behavioral adaptations to recognize external complex chemicals. Olfaction plays an important role in perceiving volatile chemicals, utilizing them to locate host sites, conspecifics, and enemies. Chemosensory proteins (CSPs) are present in high concentrati...
  10. Brassica plant responses to mild herbivore stress elicited by two specialist insects from different feeding guilds.

    Journal of Chemical Ecology 40(2):136 (2014) PMID 24500734

    These results have implications for the understanding of plasticity in plant defenses against herbivores and for the management of Brassica rapa in agroecosystems....
