Climate, People, and the Environment Program Seminar Series - Dr. Amy Trowbridge; Assistant Professor, Entomology Depart
Small Molecules, Big Impacts: Understanding How Biogenic Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) Mediate Interactions Between Forests, Insects, and the Atmosphere.
Tuesday, November 12, 2019
Plant volatile organic compounds can play critical roles in determining atmospheric processes and mediating multi-species interactions. In turn, these emissions are in large part controlled by both climate and biotic pressures, including insects and pathogens. In this talk, I will discuss ways in which we are addressing these complex feedbacks including the consequences for ozone formation and plant-insect interaction.
