Priscila received an award at the VII Congress of the Latin American Association of Chemical Ecology
Our PhD student Priscila Mezzomo received an award for her oral presentation at the VII Congress of the Latin American Association of Chemical Ecology, held in Buenos Aires - Argentina in early December 2023. In her talk, she shows how volatile and non-volatile metabolites can have contrasting roles as plant defensive strategies. Specifically, Priscila's results suggest great specificity in volatile plant responses, as induced upon feeding by different insect herbivores.
