In recent years, the development of biological pest control
strategies has focused on the chemical profiles of insect-plant
interactions. Plants exhibit an extensive range of defensive
strategies, which include insect avoidance, deterrence and
antibiosis. The need to overcome these vegetative defence responses
has driven the evolution of an array of detoxifying mechanisms,
which have become the hallmark of the phytophagous insects'
chemical ecology. This volume presents the advances made on
phytochemcial biopesticides, covering behavioural, chemical,
biochemical and molecular levels of the field. The role of
Phytochemicals in integrated pest management is also addressed,
whilst discussing the problems and prospects of biopesticides for
commercial exploitation. The volume provides a comprehensive
overview for graduate students, research scientists and
professionals in chemical ecology, insect-plant interactions,
phytochemistry, chemistry and biochemistry of insects, and insect
