About this book

Emphasizes biochemical and molecular interactions, basic biology, and the roles of hormones, receptors, and other cellular components in modulating interactions between host insects and attacking agents. These topics also are assessed in relation to biotechnology and biological control.

The collection of reviews contained in this two-volume book is wide ranging and provides fresh information written by those who have first-hand knowledge. The references cited are current up to 1993, and there is a detailed index in both volumes. This book represents an invaluable collection of disparate phenomena concerning both insects and their guests in a single source. --PARASITOLOGY TODAY "All the chapters in this book are well referenced. It will serve as a useful reference book for undergraduates and graduates interested in host-parasite/pathogen interactions." --BULLETIN OF ENTOMOLOGICAL RESEARCH
