Herbivore-induced volatiles (HIPVs) from cotton plants were found to provide associational resistance by affecting the oviposition behaviour in the moth Spodoptera littoralis. Our results suggest that the presence of HIPV-emitting plant neighbours can reduce herbivory on undamaged plants and enhance plant resistance by reducing insect herbivore attack.
