Unravelling the evolutionary which means of such chemical verbal exchange networks can provide new insights into the ecology of those bugs and particularly on find out how to increase their use for the keep an eye on of noxious pests in organic regulate programmes.
Chemical Ecology of Insect Parasitoids is a well timed ebook, with organised chapters to offer an important wisdom and discoveries that experience taken position during the last decade, and their capability use in pest control strategy. particular correct case reviews are provided to reinforce the reader's experience.
fitted to graduate scholars researchers and practitioners in pest administration, entomology, evolutionary biology, behavioural ecology, and chemical ecology, this ebook is key for a person wanting details in this very important staff of insects.
