Look Who’s Talking: Chemical Language of Plants

Plants have exploited the language of small chemicals for interacting with their environment more extensively than any other living organism. A diversity of volatile molecules released by plants plays essential roles in their growth, development, reproduction, defense and communication. They also influence atmospheric chemistry and climate, and humans use them as flavors, fragrances, biofuels, insecticides and pharmaceuticals.
