Key Features

  • Presents coevolution of herbivores and host plants
  • Examines resource availability and its effects on secondary metabolism and herbivores
  • Studies physiology and biochemistry of adaptation to hosts
  • Includes tri-trophic interactions involving predators and microbes


This volume presents the latest research on herbivores, aquatic and terrestrial mammals and insects. The Second Edition, written almost entirely by new authors, effectively complements the initial work. It includes advances in molecular biology and microbiology, ecology, and evolutionary theory that have been achieved since the first edition was published in 1979. The book also incorporates relatively new methodologies in the area of molecular biology, like protein purification and gene cloning. Volume II, Ecological and Evolutionary Processes, also opens up entirely new subjects: The discussions of interactions have expanded to include phenomena at higher trophic levels, such as predation and microbial processing and other environmental influences.

Both this and Volume I, The Chemical Participants, will be of interest to chemists, biochemists, plant and insect ecologists, evolutionary biologists, physiologists, entomologists, and agroecologists interested in both crop and animal science.


Researchers and graduate students in plant and animal biochemistry, entomology, ecology, and agriculture and evolutionary biologists, chemicalecologists, and natural product chemists
