How to transfer between plant pest information with odor

Japanese scientists reveal the causes of plant pests with the smell of transmission of information

Integrated media reported on April 29 , in the capacity of a plant suffered bites, around the same planting resistant strains such violations will also have a corresponding increase, such situations are not uncommon in nature . According to foreign media reports, the Japanese researchers recently released the results of a new study to clarify the causes of this phenomenon.

Zhezhi joint research team is composed of experts from Kyoto University and Yamaguchi University composition . They experimentally observed when the strain of tomato crops moth larvae leaves are eaten , the same plants surrounding what changes will occur.

The results showed that the tomato leaf cells damaged by insect bites , which internally generates a sugar -toxic and release a unique aroma . Upon receipt of the surrounding plant pests companions smell was issued , their body will generate a corresponding resist insect toxins. This material allows harmful larvae survival is reduced by 2 percent.

It is understood , rice , eggplant, cucumbers and other plants has a similar defense mechanism. Professor Lin Chunshi high chemical ecology of Kyoto University , said the plant can use this characteristic to develop a new type of energy-efficient pesticides to enhance their ability to resist pests and diseases .
