Abstract

Allelopathy is identified particularly with chemical activity between plants; entomologists refer to allelochemicals in a broader context. Recent work shows that several groups of compounds associated with allelopathy also play a part in communication between plants and other organisms. It is argued that such communication is part of the similarities in plant and animal responses to stress and may contribute to plant defense.
