Review of the hardback: 'The wide scope, systematic approach and technical language all make this an excellent reference text.' Biologist
Review of the hardback: '... an interesting book, summarizing not only a great amount of detailed knowledge, but addressing also general evolutionary issues such as the role of pheromones for speciation processes. ... provides a fascinating complexity of plant-insect and insect-insect interactions and communication that enthrals even the experienced reader and thus encourages every effort to preserve the future of these interactions and their further evolution. ... provides fascinating topics for the generally interested reader and student, as well as detailed accounts for professionals working in specific areas. Thus, I recommend this book to all persons aiming to 'look behind the curtain' of plant-insect interactions as well as interactions between insects - these readers will be impressed.' Journal of Insect Conservation
' ... informative and detailed ...' American Entomologist
"The book is essential reading for researchers and graduate students of chemically mediated communication in insects." CSA
"Readers should not let the chapter titles dissuade them from further examination; this volume provides in-depth overviews of selected research topics within the broad field of chemical ecology. Although all of the chapters are informative, I especially found the chapter on chemically mediated tri-trophic level interactions and the chapter on the relationship between tiger moths and plant alkaloid chemistry to be fascinating." Stephen P. Cook, Entomological Society of America
