About this book

During the past decade, the study of the chemical structures used by insects has advanced from a subject that could be reviewed in a single volume to a vastly more advanced level. This important new volume brings together a focused group of reviews that offer perspective on the most interesting advances in insect chemical ecology.
Chemical Ecology of Insects 2 brings together an internationally respected group of experts covering such topics as chemoreception and integration, orientation mechanisms, plant-insect interactions and insect-insect interactions. An important benefit of these reviews lies in the identification of the boundaries of our current knowledge and the most profitable areas in which we should expect these areas to develop.
This important work will appeal to entomologists and ecologists working directly with insects. In addition, plant scientists interested in the interaction of plants and insects will find much valuable information. The book is intended to benefit both field and laboratory researchers as well as advanced students.

Reviews

`This book distinguishes itself in the last section, with four chapters devoted mostly to sociochemistry. These four chapters are particularly noteworthy-synthetic, well-integrated, provocative, and accompanied by eye-popping comprehensive bibliographies.'
Ecology
`This volume contains ten review chapters by international experts on the ways in which chemical cues modify ecological interactions. Topics covered include chemoreception and integration; orientation; and plant-insect interactions. Speculations on the ultimate selective factors maintaining the behaviours are also included.'
