Explores recent advances in the chemically based interactions between insects and plants, with an emphasis on mechanistic approaches, in an ecological and evolutionary context.
'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.'
