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'
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 toxicology.
