About this book

This book provides an up-to-date and in-depth coverage of how insects produce pheromones and the detection of pheromones and plant volatiles. It also provides the background for mitigating the profound socio-economic impacts of insects.

Contents

Part 1: PHEROMONE PRODUCTION Biosynthesis and detection of pheromones and plant volatiles - Introduction and Overview. Biology and ultrastructure of sex pheromone producing tissue . Biochemistry of female moth sex pheromones. Molecular Biological Investigations of Pheromone Desaturases, PBAN regulation of pheromone biosynthesis in female moths. Biosynthesis and endocrine regulation of pheromone production in Coleoptera. Molecular Biology of Pheromone Production in Bark Beetles. Biosynthesis and ecdysteroid regulation of housefly sex pheromone production. Genetic studies on pheromone production in Drosophila. Regulation of pheromone biosynthesis, transport and emission in cockroaches. Pheromone biosynthesis in social insects. Alkaloid-derived pheromones and sexual selection in Lepidoptera. Part 2: PHEROMONE DETECTION The biochemical design of pheromone and odor detection The biochemistry of odor detection and its future prospects Biochemical Diversity in Odor Detection: OBPs, ODE, and SNMPs.
