Exhaust Keeps Moths From Finding Flowers

Exhaust fumes from cars and trucks, along with natural plant odors, can make it hard for pollinating moths to find flowers, researchers say. Because the calories from feeding off a flower fuel only 15 minutes of flight, as is the case with the tobacco hornworm moth, being misled costs a pollinator energy and time. “Local vegetation can mask the scent of flowers because the background scents activate the same moth olfactory channels as floral scents,” says Jeffrey Riffell, assistant professor of biology at University of Washington. “Plus the chemicals in these scents are similar to those emitted from exhaust engines and we found that pollutant concentrations equivalent to urban environments can decrease the ability of pollinators to find flowers.”
