Damage to the oilseed rape plant (Brassica napus L.) by the cabbage stem flea beetle, Psylliodes chrysocephala L. (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) induces systemic changes to the glucosinolate profile, most noticeably an increase in the concentration of indole glucosinolates. When jasmonic acid was applied to the cotyledons of the plant, a similar effect was observed. Feeding tests with artificial substrates compared a glucosinolate fraction from jasmonic acid-treated plants with a similar fraction from untreated plants. In these tests, alterations to the glucosinolate profile increased the feeding of a crucifer-specialist feeder (P. chrysocephala). However, in whole plant tests, P. chrysocephala did not feed more on the jasmonic acid treated plants than on the controls. This implies that other aspects of the damage response are being induced by the jasmonic acid treatment and having a negative effect on subsequent herbivory.
