abstract
New insight into the mechanism of plant defence is emerging rapidly. Recent literature and our initial results clearly indicate that the fundamental role of low molecular mass volatiles has been greatly underestimated. With the present experimental approach, i.e. development of a continuous monitoring system, we strongly suspect to acquire rapid and real knowledge giving access to a new field of biocontrol over pests and plant growth.
