Abstract: Biogenic volatile organic compounds (BVOCs) are released to the atmosphere from vegetation. BVOCs aid in maintaining ecosystem sustainability via a series of functions, however, VOCs can alter tropospheric photochemistry and negatively affect biological organisms at high concentrations. Due to their critical role in ecosystem and environmental sustainability, BVOCs receive particular attention by global change biologists. To understand how plant VOC emissions affect stress responses within a dose-response context, dose responses should be evaluated. This commentary collectively documents hormetic-like responses of plant-emitted VOCs to external stimuli. Hormesis is a generalizable biphasic dose response phenomenon where the response to low doses acts in an opposite way at high doses. These collective findings suggest that ecological implications of low-level stress that may alter BVOC emissions should be considered in future studies. This commentary promotes new insights into the interface between biological systems and environmental change that influence several parts of the globe, and provide a base for advancing hazard assessment testing strategies and protocols to provide decision makers with adequate data for generating environmental standards.
