Non-specialists will be surprised to read that cantharidin is not necessarily synthesized in both sexes in meloids (males transferthe compound to females with the sperm package at mating) or As emphasized in the foreword by E.O.

Naturally, predominantly model species tion, scanning electron microphotographs, graphs, line drawing of insects are dealt with in detail (e.g. the ornate moth, Utetesia of chemical formulas of the substances in question, structural ornatrix, is mentioned in many chapters), but chemical commu- and anatomical details as well as sketches of laboratory experi- nication in numerous other organisms like e.g., spiders, milli- pedes and vertebrate insect predators is also considered.
The Bibliography contains a list of more than 300 references Thomas Eisner was born in Berlin, Germany in 1929, and grouped in a paragraph called “General readings” and a further graduated at Harvard University in 1952, and is one of the pio- 10 paragraphs referring to individual chapters. The index at the neers in the study of chemical communication, especially the end of book is a desirable combination of an index of scientific use of pheromones in courtship and understanding of defence names, facilitating orientation, and references to genera, species mechanisms. This excellent book is based on hundreds of and higher taxonomic groups of insect and other animal and original papers in research journals and his experiences as both plants, a subject index including chemical substances and an a laboratory experimentalist and field biologist in Uruguay, index of the authors mentioned in the text.
