This is the first book focusing on the chemoecology of insect eggs and egg deposition. It covers a wide range of different issues including herbivorous and carnivorous insects, social insects and those of medical and veterinary importance. The knowledge compiled in this book may promote future studies on evolutionary aspects on insect reproductive behaviour as well as on controlling insect pests by targeting the egg stage.

Media reviews

The editors Monika Hilker and Torsten Meiners have brought together 13 splendid chapters on all aspects of the chemical ecology of insect eggs and their deposition. This book is a must for every biologist. Students are made enthusiastic and the professional will marvel about the many aspects of insect eggs that he/she did not know yet. It is a book not to be missed. - Marcel Dicke
