Lepidoptera: Classification, Behavior and Ecology $209.00
Editors: Elia Guerritore and Johannes DeSare
Book Description:
Lepidoptera is a large order of insects that includes moths and butterflies which inhabit all terrestrial habitats ranging from desert to rainforest, from lowland grasslands to mountain plateaus. In this book, the authors discuss the classification, behavior and ecology of lepidoptera. Topics include the molecular components of diapause in the moth sesamia nonagrioides; integrated pest management of lepidoptera in industrial crop models; odor plume behavioral and physiological implications in phytophagous insects; immune response in lepidoptera; grape vine moth behavior and ecology; South American caterpillars; and ecology of the blue-striped grub moth parasa lepida. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical)
