Who’s Listening to Talking Plants?

Part of the Signaling and Communication in Plants book series (SIGCOMM)


In the last few decades, incredible advances have been made in characterising the nature, the origin and the function of plant volatile compounds. These molecules/blends regulate important functions of plant life linked to primary and secondary metabolism. In this chapter, I will focus on the role of these compounds in plant defence against insects (direct and indirect) as determined by constitutive or induced release. I will indicate the possible targets of volatile compounds that become signals in plant–plant and plant–insect communication. I will then conclude with a possible scenario for the exploitation of plant volatiles as a sustainable tool in plant protection against agricultural pests, along with gaps in current knowledge that hamper wider application in the field.
