Management of Insect Pests with Semiochemicals : Concepts and Practice

Perhaps the best expression of our intent in organ~z~ng this gathering is found in the definition of the word colloquy and its derivations. A gathering allowing familiar and informal conversation among colleagues with similar interests was our objective. Our motives were, of course, complex. Our mai...
