Host-plant selection by phytophagous insects by E A Bernays and R F Chapman 1994 312pp price UKL 22.95 Pbk ISBN 0 412 03131 0 Chapman and Hall 2-6 Boundary Row London SE1 8HN, UK
This book focuses on the behavior of host-plant selection by plant-feeding insects. It described the patterns of host use, the chemical features of plants that determine host selection, the physiology of insect sensory systems and insect behavior, with an emphasis on mechanism. The book begins by looking at patters of host-plant use and plant chemicals that influence behavior; it then looks at behavior in relation to the process of host-plant selection as well as in relation to the impact of ecology and physiology. It also discusses genetic variability and concludes with a review of the evolution of host-plant ranges.
