Host-Plant Selection by Phytophagous Insects
This is the first book that focuses on the behavior of host-plant selection by plant-feeding insects. It describes the patterns of host use, the chemical features of plants that determine host selection, the physiology of insect sensory systems, and the insect behaviors, with an emphasis on mechanisms. The book also discusses genetic variability and the effects of experience, and it concludes with a review of the evolution of host plant ranges. This is a one-of-a-kind book for everyone interested in plant-feeding insects, and an important reference for undergraduates, graduate students, research scientists and agriculturists.
