The chapters in this volume have an international authorship and include some valuable data compilations that have not previously been assembled. Researchers in insect behaviour should be aware of the discoveries and theories based on other animals such as birds and mammals and the chapter on ethology ensures that insect data are placed in perspective. The tremendous explosion in knowledge and understanding of pheromones in the last decade is reflected in this volume, where six of the l5 chapters are concerned with the physiology and behaviour of insects under the influence of pheromones. More complex patterns of animal behaviour are described in chapters on feeding, courtship and mating, and migration, while features underlying the mechanisms of behavioural activity are covered in chapters on learning, colour change, chemical control and genetic analysis.
