Shalom W. Applebaum,
The section on Physiological Ecology of Insects is an integral
part of Insect Physiology Online.
It will deal with the effect of environmental conditions on the
physiology of the individual insect, and its interaction with other
insects or plants. Following is a provisional list of suggested
topics of this section. Potential contributors are invited to
suggest changes and/or additions to the list.
I. Synchronization with the environment: Temporal and spatial
alternatives, including effects of photoperiod, temperature and/or
diet on endocrine systems eliciting physiological responses
Adaptation to temperature (excluding diapause)
3. Migration (including polyphenism and phase)
II. Biotic interactions
1. Chemical defence
2. Pheromones: control of synthesis, reception and transduction.
3. a. Host selection: interaction with plant chemistry.
b. Insect-host interactions: Tritrophic interactions
c. Insect-host interactions: Effect of parasitoids on host
