Special Issue Information
Insects, as the most numerous and diverse organisms on Earth, are highly adaptative to biotic and abiotic environmental factors, such as microbes, viruses, plant metabolites, nutrients, seasonal shifts, etc. The endocrine systems of insects, in response to environmental stimuli, influence numerous biological processes, including growth, development, reproduction and behavior, achieving a physiological resistance to cope with adverse conditions. Complicated metabolic events, including nutritional homeostasis and functional metabolite production, are highly regulated during these processes. In this Special Issue, we aim to collect research that is relevant to insect hormone biosynthesis, hormone-regulated metabolic and nutritional homeostasis, insect metabolomics, the interactions between insects and plant metabolites, and the effects of microbial metabolites on insects. We welcome original research articles as well as in-depth reviews covering these topics.
