In response to attack by phytophagous insects, plants produce volatile organic compounds that serve as cues for natural enemies of the herbivore to locate their potential host or prey. Such tritrophic interactions are well understood aboveground. Recently, it has become evident that such interactions also occur belowground. Among the compounds that are involved in belowground tritrophic...
