A comparative analysis of the chemical nature of defensive secretions of Gonyleptidae (Arachnida : Opiliones : Laniatores)
(Elsevier B.V., 2005-12-01)
The arachnids of the order Opiliones (harvestmen) produce substances used in defense. In the present paper, we analyzed 22 species of Gonyleptidae to explore the use of defensive substances in taxonomy and evolutionary ...
Chemical defense in harvestmen (Arachnida, Opiliones): Do benzoquinone secretions deter invertebrate and vertebrate predators?
Hiding in Plain Sight: Cuticular Compound Profile Matching Conceals a Larval Tortoise Beetle in its Host Chemical Cloud
Lines of defense in the harvestman Hoplobunus mexicanus (Arachnida: Opiliones): Aposematism, stridulation, thanatosis, and irritant chemicals

Within-plant allocation of a chemical defense in Secale cereale. Is concentration the appropriate currency of allocation?
(Birkhauser Verlag Basel, 1999)
The among-leaves allocation of DIBOA, a hydroxamic acid associated with plant resistance, in the shoot of rye (Secale cereale) was evaluated over the vegetative development of the plant. The appropriateness of using the ...
Host Plant Invests in Growth Rather than Chemical Defense When Attacked by a Specialist Herbivore
Defoliation affects chemical defenses in all plant parts of rye seedlings
(Kluwer Academic/Plenum Publishers, 1999)
The effect of defoliation and consecutive defoliation (condefoliation) of rye seedlings on the allocation patterns of biomass and hydroxamic acids (Hx) was evaluated five days after treatment. Growth of condefoliated ...

Induction of defensive response in Eucalyptus globulus plants and its persistence in vegetative propagation
The expression of defensive compounds derived from secondary metabolism in plants of Eucalyptus globulus Labill, and the persistence of these in vegetative propagation was evaluated by gas chromatography with flame ionization ...
