Distinguished entomologists and insect ecologists from the
USA, Canada, Brazil, Germany, The Netherlands, Israel, Australia and India discuss
contemporary ecological and evolutionary issues relative to plant-feeding insects
in the areas of (a) Host finding and quality, (b) Host-plant resistance, (c)
Community structure and behaviour, (d) Ecology of mutualistic and disease agents,
and (e) Evolution. The collection of professional essays will interest students
and scientists working in Agricultural and Forest entomology, Evolutionary ecology,
Insect and Plant physiology, and Molecular aspects of Insect-plant interactions.
