Sommario:
The fascinating research field of chemoecology of insects mainly considers larval and adult states, while insect eggs have been somewhat neglected up to now. However, as immobile stages the eggs are highly vulnerable and need to cope with numerous problems such as predation, parasitisation, pathogen infection and plant and host defences. How do they face these dangers? Insects have been shown to endow their eggs  Per saperne di più…
