About this book

The interactions between insects and plants over millions of years have produced amazing adaptations to them both; many plants actively encourage insects to feed on or visit them, whilst others develop highly advanced defence systems against them. This is a comprehensive look at the many varied forms of insect-plant interactions. Fully illustrated, it also gives guidance for practical investigation and identification of insects on particular plants.
