Global change effects on plant-insect interactions: The role of phytochemistry

Publications Posted on: August 29, 2017
Natural and managed ecosystems are undergoing rapid environmental change due to a growing human population and associated increases in industrial and agricultural activity. Global environmental change directly and indirectly impacts insect herbivores and pollinators.

Drought and leaf herbivory influence floral volatiles and pollinator attraction

Publications Posted on: March 03, 2016
The effects of climate change on species interactions are poorly understood. Investigating the mechanisms by which species interactions may shift under altered environmental conditions will help form a more predictive understanding of such shifts. In particular, components of climate change have the potential to strongly influence floral volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and, in turn, plant-pollinator interactions.
