Effect of Ocean Acidifi cation on the Communications among Invertebrates Mediated by Plant-Produced Volatile Organic Compounds

Published On: December 30, 2016 | Pages: 012 - 018

Author(s): Valerio Zupo*, Mirko Mutalipassi, Patrick Fink and Marco Di Natale
Chemical communications among plant and animal components are fundamental elements for the functioning and the connectivity of ecosystems. In particular, wound-activated infochemicals trigger specifi c reactions of invertebrates according to evolutionary constraints, permitting them to identify prey cues, escape predators and optimize their behaviors according to s ...
