Mechanisms in insect olfaction
During the past two decades a wealth of information has been developed from research on the chemistry, sensory physiology, and behavior of insects with respect to olfactory stimulation. This volume, based on a workshop held at the University of Oxford, brings together contributions from leading research workers in a number of disciplines, who present and evaluate the results of recent work, and indicate directions for future research. Considering both behavioral and physiological mechanisms, they treat topics such as the structure of odor plumes, pheromone-induced anemotaxis, orientation along terrestrial trails by ants, neuropharmacological effects on olfactory perception, and epripheral chemoreceptors and regulation of insect behavior.
