The CO2laser-based photoacoustic spectroscopy apparatus, constructed at ENEA Frascati (Italy), was applied to monitor trace amounts of ethylene emitted by plants in a stress condition. More specifically, in the present work, the biotic stress response of tomato mutant plants after inoculation with Phthorimaea operculella larvae (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae) was investigated. The principle of the method, the photoacoustic setup, the experimental work, and the results are being reported.
