Overview

The use of insect pheromones in pest management is a rapidly growing field of research and practice in the agricultural and urban environments. An understanding of this area requires knowledge of both chemistry and biology to a depth, which can cause frustration in even the most experienced researchers. Insect Pheromones and their Use in Pest Management overcomes such difficulties by providing a rounded perspective, assuming only a minimum of prior knowledge of the disciplines involved.
This book is aimed primarily at students of pest management who have reached the upper level of their undergraduate studies or are embarking on a Master's level course or a research programme. The book has been purposefully organised into three parts, each written by a different author who brings his own focus and perspective to this interdisciplinary field.
Insect Pheromones and their Use in Pest Management offers the reader a well-rounded introduction to this branch of chemical ecology. A comprehensive reference list gives students a sound point-of-entry to the literature and all topics covered are thoroughly illustrated.
