Himanen, Sari; Nuotio, Netta-Leena; Vuorinen, Terhi; Tuovinen, Tuomo and Holopainen, Jarmo K. (2006) Volatile emission from strawberry plants is induced by mite and leaf beetle feeding and methyl jasmonate. In: NJF Report, Nordic Association of Agricultural Scientists, 2 (10), p. 29.
We have studied the emission of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from young strawberry plants, cultivars Polka and Honeoye, after feeding by several strawberry herbivores under laboratory conditions. VOC profile of strawberry plants is highly dominated by green leaf volatiles (GLVs), which are released also due to mechanical damage. Our results reveal that strawberry has potential for inducible VOC defence, and this encourages testing the attractiveness of these strawberry VOCs to predatory mites.
