Yet the whole process of host-plant selection and host-plant specificity amongst insects depends on behavior, and selection for behavioral differences must be a prime factor in the evolution of host-plant specificity. In writing this book, we hope to draw attention to this central role of behavior and, hopefully, encourage a few students to attack some of the very difficult questions that remain unanswered.

Host-Plant Selection by Phytophagous Insects. by Elizabeth A. Bernays and Reginald F. Chapman. For more than 20 years insect/plant relations have been a focus for studies in ecology and evolution. The importance of insects as crop pests, and the great potential of insects for the biological control of weeds, have provided further impetus for work in this area.

Series: Contemporary Topics in Entomology. By: EA Bernays and RF Chapman. Publisher: Chapman & Hall. The first book that focuses on the behaviour of host-plant selection by plant-feeding insects, the authors cover the patterns found in nature and the chemical features of plants that determine host selection. The sensory systems involved in making the selection are presented together with relevant functional studies.

This is the first book that focuses on the behavior of host-plant selection by plant-feeding insects. It describes the patterns of host use, the chemical features of plants that determine host selection, the physiology of insect sensory systems, and the insect behaviors, with an emphasis on mechanisms. The book also discusses genetic variability and the effects of experience, and it concludes with a review of the evolution of host plant ranges. This is a one-of-a-kind book for everyone interested in plant-feeding insects, and an important reference for undergraduates, graduate students, research scientists and agriculturists.
