About this book

This volume summarizes the current knowledge of symbiotic organisms in the biology of insects. Research findings have significant and diverse ramifications, including for the control of agricultural pests and disease-carrying insects, evolutionary biology and physiology, biochemistry and genetics, and animal behavior. Written by an interdisciplinary team of experts, this book is an essential reference for a number of fields. This third complements the first two. Together they provide a continuing body of knowledge on insect symbiosis.

Media reviews
Each reader will find chapters to delight him- or herself. ! should find a home in every biology library! a solid introduction to students, and extensive reviews of the past 20 years of research for professional investigators. They also will provide hours of enjoyable reading. The books represent the flowering of decades of research by dozens of pioneering scientists, and show how important symbiosis is to the biological sciences. The topic is so rich, and the investigators so productive that the editors could continue to produce a new volume every 3 years, indefinitely. Let's hope they do. -- Michael F. Dolan, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, USA "... chapters are like reviews and provide a good, and accurate, background of the topic under discussion. The wide-ranging nature of the content ensures that this book has something for everyone with an interest in symbiosis and it would be a useful addition to the bookshelf of any researcher with an interest in symbiosis in general." -- David Clarke, University College Cork, in Microbiology Today, May 2009 "This volume is a step forward in advancing the goal of using our knowledge about endosymbionts for practical pest management programs." -- Marjorie A. Hoy, Entomology & Nematology Department, University of Florida, in Florida Entomologist, June 2009, Vol. 92, No. 2
