About this book

Insect pheromones are considered from three viewpoints: behavioural biology, chemistry and pest control. Topics investigated include the role of insect semiochemicals in communication, the chemical structure and diversity of pheromones and implications for methods of isolation and identification.


Part One Pheromones and behaviours: insect semiochemicals and communication; role of pheromones in insect ecology and behaviour; factors influencing the responses of insects to pheromones; bioassay methods. Part Two: Chemical aspects of pheromones: chemical structure and diversity of pheromones; isolation and structure determination; synthesis of pheromones; structure and species specificity. Part Three Practical applications of pheromones and other semiochemicals: pest monitoring; mass trapping; lure and kill; mating disruption.
