- ... Comparative study of the headspace (HS) composition from olive leaves, olives of varying degrees of ripeness, and crushed olives revealed significant quantitative and qualitative differences. Three different methods were employed to test the effect of the substances identified on the behavior of Dacus oleae gravid females. Attractive/repellent features were tested by presenting the insects with ol ...

- ... The egg dispersion strategy of the olive fruit fly Dacus oleae, which is dependent on chemicals from the fruit, was investigated. In particular, the exact role of o-diphenolic compounds, such as the typical olive glucosides, oleuropein and demethyloleuropein, and their derivatives was clarified. It appears that the strong chemotactile repulsive effect exerted by the water fraction of crushed olive ...
