Altered Constitutive and Inducible Phloem Monoterpenes Following Natural Defoliation of Jack Pine: Implications to Host Mediated Interguild ...
Jasmonate-triggered plant immunity.
The plant hormone jasmonate (JA) exerts direct control over the production of chemical defense compounds that confer resistance to a remarkable spectrum of plant-associated organisms, ranging from microbial pathogens to vertebrate herbivores. The underlying mechanism of JA-triggered immunity (JATI)...
Chemical Ecology without borders.
Identification of the major sex pheromone component of the scale insect, Aulacaspis murrayae Takahashi.
(R)-Solanone was identified as a female-specific compound from aerations of virgin females of the scale insect, Aulacaspis murrayae Takahashi. The stereochemistry of the insect-produced solanone was confirmed to be (R) by comparison with synthesized racemic and chiral standards on a chiral stationar...
Chemical ecology in the post genomics era.
Mixture-amount design and response surface modeling to assess the effects of flavonoids and phenolic acids on developmental performance of A...
We used mixture-amount experimental design and response surface modeling to study the effects of a variety of phenolic compounds on the development and survival of Mexican fruit fly (Anastrepha ludens [Loew]), a notorious polyphagous pest of fruit crops that is likely to expand its distribution rang...
Transgenic upregulation of the condensed tannin pathway in poplar leads to a dramatic shift in leaf palatability for two tree-feeding Lepido...
We conclude that for these two lepidopteran species, condensed tannin levels are unlikely to be a major determinant of caterpillar food preference or performance. However, our experiments show that overexpression of a single regulatory gene in transgenic aspen can have a significant impact on herbiv...
Volatiles from intact and Lygus-damaged Erigeron annuus (L.) Pers. are highly attractive to ovipositing Lygus and its parasitoid Peristenus ...
We explore behavioral responses of Lygus bugs (L. rubrosignatus Knight) and an introduced parasitoid, Peristenus relictus (Hymenoptera: Braconidae), to a common field edge plant, Erigeron annuus, which has the potential to serve as a trap host. Erigeron annuus is attractive to Lygus in the field, wi...
Modulation of aphid alarm pheromone emission of pea aphid prey by predators.
We investigated variability in alarm signaling in aphids, group-living insect herbivores. Under attack, aphids release droplets containing a volatile alarm pheromone, (E)-β-farnesene (EBF), that induces specific escape behavior in conspecifics. We used a handheld gas chromatograph (zNose™), which al...
