A unique and critical analysis of the wealth of research conducted on the biology, biochemistry and chemical ecology of the rapidly growing field of insect cuticular hydrocarbons. Authored by leading experts in their respective fields, the twenty chapters show the complexity that has been discovered in the nature and role of hydrocarbons in entomology. Covers, in great depth, aspects of chemistry (structures, qualitative and quantitative analysis), biochemistry (biosynthesis, molecular biology, genetics, evolution), physiology, taxonomy, and ecology. Clearly presents to the reader the array of data, ideas, insights and historical disagreements that have been accumulated during the past half century. An emphasis is placed on the role of insect hydrocarbons in chemical communication, especially among the social insects. Includes the first review on the chemical synthesis of insect hydrocarbons. The material presented is a major resource for current researchers and a source of ideas for new researchers.

Book Description:

A critical review of hydrocarbons present on the cuticle of insects and other arthropods for researchers in biology, entomology and chemical ecology. Emphasizes the role of insect hydrocarbons in chemical communication, in species and sex-recognition, and especially among social insects, where hydrocarbons function extensively in recognition processes.

About the Author:

Gary J. Blomquist is the chair of the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Nevada, Reno. He has published over 200 original research papers, reviews, chapters and books, including co-editing the books Pheromone Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (with R. G. Vogt, 2003) and Pheromone Biochemistry (with G. D. Prestwich, 1987). His work has been cited over 4500 times (ISI). Much of Blomquist's research career has involved the study of insect hydrocarbons with an emphasis on their biosynthesis, endocrine regulation and chemical analyses. He published his first paper on insect hydrocarbons 40 years ago (1969) and has remained active in this field, collaborating with many of the early leaders in the field including Larry Jackson, Dennis Nelson, Ralph Howard, Coby Schal and Anne-Geneviève Bagnères.
