Title :

'Drug addicted' insects in Africa

Abstract :

Pharmacophagy and its diverse functional aspects is introduced using examples from studies on relationships between insects and pyrrolizidine alkaloids (PAs) in Africa. Remaining open questions are outlined, emphasizing the over-riding need for natural history information from the field on ‘PA-insects’ and ‘PA-plants’.
