Abstract:Plant odors are a highly diverse mixture of volatile compounds. Their diversity plays an important role in the relationship between phytophagous insects, the natural predators of these insects, and plants. Exploring the relationship between plant odor diversity and insect olfactory behavior on different landscape scales has recently become a popular area of research which combines insect chemical ecology, insect behavior and landscape ecology. This paper reviews recent progress in research on plant odors, the relationship between the diversity of plant odors and phytophagous insects, the relationship between the diversity of plant odors and the natural enemies of such insects, and the methods used to investigate plant odor diversity. We expect that this review will promote research on plant odor diversity in China.
