The genetic control of pheromone production and response in the pine engraver beetle Ips pini


An understanding of the genetic coordination of signal and response in communication systems is an elusive quest in many organisms. Two hypotheses currently exist to explain the mechanism of coordination and its evolution: (1) signal-response systems are a result of pleiotropic effects of a gene or genes controlling the neural network underlying both or, (2… (More)
