Chemical signals produced by plants when attacked by herbivores play a crucial role in efficient plant defence. A recent study suggests that herbivore-specific R-gene resistance may be enhanced by elevated atmospheric CO2 concentrations. Understanding how climate change affects plant resistance to herbivorous pests could be essential for future food security.
