About this book

Language: English

This special volume of Entomologia Generalis, guest-edited by Professor Lars Chittka, London, is dedicated to Pollinator Behaviour and Plant-Insect Interactions. It contains seventeen peer-reviewed contributions by 43 specialists in this field worldwide.

This thematic triple issue highlights some of the interesting aspects and current findings of research in pollinator behaviour and plant-insect interactions. It not only addresses specialists in the field of sensory and behavioural research on insects, but also provides useful hints for pollination practitioners in agriculture and those responsible in conservation technology. Objects of research are predominantly social insects e.g. honey bees, bumblebees, and paperwasps, but also beetles and butterflies. All papers deepen our understanding of how insects interact with their environments through their senses and modes of behaviour. They cover various aspects, from photoreception and behavioural responses on scent and colour of flowers and leaves to the analysis of odour mixtures or other volatile components and seasonal or ecological colour changes and ranges. Further ones deal with memory dynamics and decision making, as well as evolutionary aspects of dance communication and relationships between crop loading and ambient temperature, flower constancy on insect visitation rates, and predator-prey relations.
