About this title


Examines current research into botanical insecticides. Learn more on the isolation, synthesis, structures and biological activity of a wide range of natural plant products. See how insecticidal compounds taken from ordinary garden plants, exotic tropical species and other sources produce the desired effects. Includes highly technical processes such as the application of electrophysiological recordings to investigate the mode of action of antifeedants. Learn more about exploiting natural plant compounds through transgenic strategies. The structures shown can be used as leads for the synthesis of new insecticides that mimic the natural action of insect-resistant plants.
