It provides important infomration for those interested in both fundamental and applied research, but also for readers who are just fascinated by the mulitple facets of the chemoecology of insects

This is the first book focusing on the chemoecology of insect eggs and egg deposition. It covers a wide range of different issues including herbivorous and carnivorous insects, social insects and those of medical and veterinary importance.
