From: The timing of herbivore-induced volatile emission in black poplar (Populus nigra) and the influence of herbivore age and identity affect the value of individual volatiles as cues for herbivore enemies

Figure 1

Emission patterns representing the major chemical classes released by young trees upon herbivory by 4th instar larvae of Lymantria dispar (gypsy moth) or from undamaged controls over a 4-day experiment. The graphs depict the rates of emission for individual compounds over the course of herbivory (initiated at the beginning of the experiment for herbivory treatment) as well as after herbivore removal. Volatiles were continuously sampled day and night in 6 h intervals. Means and ± SEM are given.
