The reason why insect-plant relationships attract more and more attention has been given by Professor Schoonhoven in the introductory lecture to this symposium: 'The green blanket on the earth's surface with its myriads of insects has already revealed some of its complex workings, but contains many more facets which need to be discovered to gratify our insatiable curiosity, as well as help to improve agricultural production'. The 9th International Symposium on Insect-Plant Relationships (SIP-9) was once more, following the tradition established in 1958, a forum for investigators in both basic and applied entomology. Participants from 26 countries throughout the world presented 12 keynote lectures and a total of 141 oral presentations and posters. The proceedings volume contains 72 contributions of both oral lectures and posters which were all peer-reviewed by two independent referees.

Editorial Reviews

Oral lectures and poster presentations are among the 72 contributions from investigators of both basic and applied entomology. They cover sensory-physiology, behavior, techniques for studying those aspects, insect ecophysiology, plant variability, plant resistance, interactions and mutualism, and evolution. Among the specific topics are optical and chemical stimuli control pollen feeding in the hoverfly, the early appearance of foraging flight associated with starvation in an aphid, the computer (Windows) display and analysis of electrophysiological data, trade-offs in larval performance on normal and novel hosts, the effect of color and glucosinolates on the interaction between oilseed rape and pollen beetles, biological and chemical characteristics of a genetic resistance of melon to the melon aphid, and the chemoecology of larvae of the European apple sawfly.
