Format: Paperback
An extremely well written and researched book with an accessible, informative style. A book for undergraduates and researchers or readers wishing to gain greater insight into a fascinating topic. There is an extensive reference section, further reading recommendations and overall this book provides an excellent grounding in insect-plant interactions; the chapters on Ecology and application of knowledge are particularly useful. Highly recommended!
