What may occur to plants that are downwind from a plant of a different species that is under insect attack?

    The downwind plant may respond to some of the volatile signal compounds produced by the plant under attack, increasing production of protective compounds before being attacked.
    The plant downwind from the plant under attack will most likely be swarmed with insects before any compounds can be produced by the plant under attack.
    The plant undergoing attack will produce additional auxins and replace the tissues under attack, but the adjacent plants will not be affected.
    Nothing will be different, since they are a different species from the one under attack.
