Ecological, behavioral, and biochemical aspects of insect hydrocarbons.

  title={Ecological, behavioral, and biochemical aspects of insect hydrocarbons.},
  author={R. Howard and Gary J Blomquist},
  journal={Annual review of entomology},
This review covers selected literature from 1982 to the present on some of the ecological, behavioral, and biochemical aspects of hydrocarbon use by insects and other arthropods. Major ecological and behavioral topics are species- and gender-recognition, nestmate recognition, task-specific cues, dominance and fertility cues, chemical mimicry, and primer pheromones. Major biochemical topics include chain length regulation, mechanism of hydrocarbon formation, timing of hydrocarbon synthesis and… CONTINUE READING
