Assessing the Potential of Tropospheric Oxidants to Interfere with Insect Host Location, Mate Location, and Foraging Choice

Brynn Cook
Insects can use long distance olfactory cues, like floral scents or sex pheromones, as ‘scent-pathways’ that can lead them to either floral hosts or mate-ready conspecifics. These plumes or comprised of blends of different chemical compounds, and can be used to identify as well as locate a specific floral host or mate. However, tropospheric oxidants, including the pollutant ozone, could react with the chemical compounds that make up these olfactory cues, potentially causing compositional changes...
