Abstract

A new bioassay was devised in which slugs were allowed to follow trails of the aqueous volatiles isolated from plants by vacuum distillation. Volatiles from lettuce, carrot and dandelion induced greatest response. Components from lettuce, which at their most active concentrations can cause a response similar to that from the whole plant, were identified.
