About this book

The book brings to light the most recent findings on the biogeography, biodiversity, host plant induction and natural history of gall inducing insects in the Neotropical region. We attempt to summarize the work done so far in the region, promote several syntheses on many aspects such as host induction, host specialization, distribution among the several vegetation types and zones, the origin of super hosts and the mechanisms leading to geographical patterns in their distribution. Furthermore, the book constructs new perspectives for deeper understanding of galling insect evolutionary ecology and biogeopgraphy in the region.

Reviews

“This book comprises 24 chapters that reveal an array of research on physiology, ecology, and diversity of neotropical galls. … For gall enthusiasts and researchers of plant-insect interactions, this book would be good addition to their library. The volume highlights interesting tropical research that may not be familiar to scientists from temperate parts of the world.” (John Tooker, The Quarterly Review of Biology, Vol. 90 (2), June, 2015)
