Drakolide Structure-activity Relationships for Sexual Attraction of Zeleboria Wasp Pollinator

Bohman, Bjorn; Tan, Monica M. Y.; Flematti, Gavin; Peakall, Rod


Orchids pollinated by sexual deception lure their specific male pollinators by sex pheromone mimicry. Despite the growing list of chemically diverse semiochemicals known to be involved, the chemical basis and flexibility of this extreme pollinator specificity are not fully understood. One promising but rarely applied tool is the synthesis and field testing of chemically related variants for investigating the structural specificity of the pheromone mimics. Here, we build on the discovery of the...[Show more]
