New paper published – Disproportionate photosynthetic decline and inverse relationship between constitutive and induced volatile emissions upon feeding of Quercus robur leaves by large larvae of gypsy moth (Lymantria dispar)

Text by Lauri Laanisto Another paper by Ülo´s former postdoc Lucian, who does a lot of small experiments, where they measure all sorts of factors that could affect organic volatile emissions in plants. This time the focus is on the … Continue reading

New paper out – Scaling of photosynthesis and constitutive and induced volatile emissions with severity of leaf infection by rust fungus (Melampsora larici-populina) in Populus balsamifera var. suaveolens

Text by Lauri Laanisto In addition to the role of abiotic stress in regulating the emissions of volatile organic compunds in plants, members of our lab also study biotic stress factors. For example leaf fungi. This is just one little … Continue reading

New paper out – Herbivory by an outbreaking moth increases emissions of biogenic volatiles and leads to enhanced secondary organic aerosol formation capacity

Text from EMU news Our researchers involved in a study demonstrating that enhanced insect herbivory under global change can alter climate Future warmer climates in northern latitudes facilitate dispersal of many insect herbivores and lead to overall greater plant herbivore … Continue reading

New paper published – Mono-and sesquiterpene release from tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) leaves upon mild and severe heat stress and through recovery: From gene expression to emission responses

Text by Leila Pazouki This study is the extension of our previous paper that was published by Lucian Copolovici in 2012. We made it broader and added gene expression analysis of some important terpene synthases such as β-phellandrene synthase and … Continue reading

New paper published – Multi-Substrate Terpene Synthases: Their Occurrence and Physiological Significance

Text by Leila Pazouki Some months after we published the original research article entitled “Germacrene A Synthase in Yarrow (Achillea millefolium) Is an Enzyme with Mixed Substrate Specificity: Gene Cloning, Functional Characterization and Expression Analysis” in Frontiers in Plant Science … Continue reading

New paper – Screening Study of Leaf Terpene Concentration of 75 Borneo Rainforest Plant Species: Relationships with Leaf Elemental Concentrations and Morphology

Text by Lauri Laanisto That data publication is really a bit of a blast from the past. Although it was published in 2015, this manuscript describing terpenes found from 75 common tree species growing in Borneo was first submitted to … Continue reading

New paper accepted – Optimum temperature for floral terpene emissions tracks the mean temperature of the flowering season

Ülo has had a quite a collaboration with Spanish ecophysiologists and that has yielded another publication. This time together with the Josep Peñuelas group in Barcelona, which hides behind an acronym: CREAF-CEAB-CSIC-UAB, CSIC. Not bad! The authors are: Gerard Farré‐Armengol, … Continue reading
