01Plant-insect interactions : Sagar Pandit The eye openers: case studies to facilitate the understanding of the chemistry of real world multitrophic interactions.
Multitrophic interactions involving plants, insect herbivores and their natural enemies
Plant's chemical defense, herbivore counteradaptations and effects on natural enemies
Case study 1 of chemical ecology research revealing the importance of phytochemistry in a multitrophic system
Case study 1 of chemical ecology research revealing the cost-benefit considerations of chemical interactions
02Multitrophic interactions and climate change : Renee Borges
This lecture will address the chemical features of signalling and communication across trophic interactions; e.g.microbes-plants-herbivores-parasitoids-hyperparastioids; or plants-herbivores-pollinators; or below-ground fauna-above ground fauna including vertebrates
