    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Abstract In response to feeding by herbivorous insects many plant species produce volatile compounds, particularly terpenoids, that are used by natural enemies of the herbivores to locate their prey. We are studying the factors that regulate this volatile production in cucumber (Cucumis sativus) leaves upon feeding by the two-spotted spider mite (Tetranychus urticae) and that are used as cues by the predatory mite Phytoseiulus persimilis. Cucumber shows a clear and specific induction of volatiles upon spider mite feeding or jasmonic acid spraying. Here we show how we use metabolomics and transcriptomics to isolate and characterize enzymes and genes involved in signaling and volatile production.
