9780120844418: Parasites and Pathogens of Insects, Vol. 1: Parasites

Both volumes of Parasites and Pathogens of Insects provide in-depth coverage of the interface between insect parasites and pathogens and hosts, and explore the relationships between these partners. They emphasize biochemical and molecular interactions, basic biology, and the roles of hormones, receptors, and other cellular components in modulating interactions between host insects and attacking agents. These topics also are assessed in relation to biotechnology and biological control.
In the short term, these volumes fill a void in current literature by emphasizing basic interactions at the biochemical and molecular levels. In the long term, these interactions may provide avenues for exploitation to enhance the rate of "beneficial" parasitism or to reduce the rates of disease transmission and infection of vertebrate hosts.

Key Features
* Presents the latest information on insect parasites and pathogens

* Covers mechanisms of insect pathogenicity and resistance

Review:

"The collection of reviews contained in this two-volume book is wide ranging and provides fresh information written by those who have first-hand knowledge. The references cited are current up to 1993, and there is a detailed index in both volumes. This book represents an invaluable collection of disparate phenomena concerning both insects and their guests in a single source." --PARASITOLOGY TODAY

"All the chapters in this book are well referenced. It will serve as a useful reference book for undergraduates and graduates interested in host-parasite/pathogen interactions." --BULLETIN OF ENTOMOLOGICAL RESEARCH
