18: Chemistry of Some Insect Secretions (1970)

George William Kenneth Cavill

Abstract


Liversidge Research Lecture delivered before the Royal Society of New South Wales, 22nd October, 1970. Reproduced by permission of the Royal Society of New South Wales from J. Proc. Roy. Soc. N.S.W., 1970, 103, 109-118.

"A number of the secretions used by insects and other arthropods for defensive purposes, as venoms, and as chemical messengers in their patterns of social organization have been characterized."

"In the present lecture emphasis is placed on aspects of the chemistry of insect secretions that have interested us since 1952."
