New paper out – Herbivory by an Outbreaking Moth Increases Emissions of Biogenic Volatiles and Leads to Enhanced Secondary Organic Aerosol Formation Capacity

Text by Lauri Laanisto Couple of days ago I reported about a paper that studied how a rust fungus affects organic volatiles in a poplar (link to blog post). However, we have quite a few people in our lab studing … Continue reading
