The chemical relationship between individual organisms and inside organisms is a universal law. Studies have found that plants can transmit disease-resistant information through volatile compounds. When plants are invaded by viruses or insects, they produce a series of secondary metabolites to fight against viruses or insects. At the same time, plants also produce volatile chemicals that spread through the air to nearby plants and induce them to produce system resistance; on the other hand, plants can also detect the type of invading insects and release specific odor compounds to attract insect predators. The study of volatile chemical substances transmitted between plants opens up new avenues for the development of new ecological agents and the prevention and control of plant diseases and insect pests.
