About this book

Overviews of biochemical, genetic, and molecular perspectives of plant-insect interactions with added emphasis on bioinformatic, genomic, and transcriptome analysis are comprehensively treated in The Biology of Plant-Insect Interactions. It presents the agro-ecological and evolutionary aspects of plant-insect interactions with an exclusive focus on the climate change effect on the resetting of plant-insect interactions. A valued resource for biologists, students, policymakers, and the general public, The Biology of Plant-Insect Interactions includes theoretical aspects as a base toward real-world applications of holistic integrated pest management in agro-ecosystems.
