Keywords:

  • plant volatile signaling - multitrophic interactions in headspace;
  • plant scents, influencing cultures and myths - since ancient times;
  • volatile organic compounds (VOCs) analysis;
  • VOCs containing context-dependent information;
  • specificity and complexity of herbivore-induced VOC production;
  • herbivore-induced volatile organic compound emission;
  • herbivore-derived elicitors - of VOC emission;
  • herbivore-induced production of VOCs - part of metabolic reconfiguration;
  • predictability of future herbivory via herbivore-induced VOCs - low, eliciting defences a net cost
