Plants have evolved a rich array of defenses to resist being eaten by herbivores. How spider mites suppress the defenses of tomato plants is not yet known but there are strong indications that they secrete salivary proteins into their hosts that manipulate the plant defenses. Jie Liu carries out a number of experiments to investigate temporal and stage-specific variation in the mite-induced responses of tomato plants.
