Abstract
Terpenoids from flower and leaf volatiles are predominantly synthesized along the mevalonate‐independent pathway, as shown by administration of [D2]deoxy‐D‐xylulose and [D5]mevalolactone. The parallel use of two pathways for the biosynthesis of the sesquiterpenoid‐derived 4,8‐dimethylnona‐1,3,7‐triene (DMNT, see picture) may be important to ensure the synthesis of the volatile alarm codes of plants.
