CRC Press, 2003. — 368 p. — (Contemporary Topics in Entomology Series).Summarizing current knowledge on symbiotic organisms in the biology of insects, Insect Symbiosis, Volume IIdescribes the diversity of symbiotic bacteria associated with pests such as whiteflies, aphids, mealybugs, psyllids, and tsetse flies. The book illustrates how symbiosis research has important ramifications for evolutionary biology, physiology, parasitology, genetics, and animal behavior and is especially relevant to the control of agricultural and disease-carrying pests. In this second volume, a few repeat authors describe brand new aspects of their research, while a new group covers recently developing aspects of symbiotic relationships. The book includes updated information on Wolbachia biology and how it influences insect life, supplies two new examples of using symbionts in crop protection, and discusses the recent "bug in a bug" mealy bug case. The book provides analysis and synthesis of cutting-edge research in insect symbiosis that sheds light on the evolution of the host/symbiont relationship, and in turn, on the general study of evolution, physiology, and genetics.Insect Symbiosis: An Introduction Buchnera Bacteria and Other Symbionts of Aphids Comparative Genomics of Insect Endosymbionts Symbiosis in Tsetse Endosymbiosis in the Weevil of the Genus Sitophilus: Genetic, Physiological, and Molecular Interactions among Associated Genomes Rhodnius prolixus and Its Symbiont, Rhodococcus rhodnii: A Model for Paratransgenic Control of Disease Transmission Bark BeetleFungus Symbioses Symbiotic Relationships of Tephritids Symbionts Affecting Termite Behavior Symbiosis of Microsporidia and Insects A New Bacterium from the Cytophaga-Flavobacterium-Bacteroides Phylum That Causes Sex-Ratio Distortion Inherited Microorganisms That Selectively Kill Male Hosts: The Hidden Players of Insect Evolution?
