This book, Insect Adipokinetic Neuropeptides,presents the results of bioassays and structure elucidation of adipokinetic neuropeptides from representatives of three insect orders, Orthoptera, Hemiptera and Coleoptera. Confirming the activity of the whole extract and the HPLC fractions using bioassays, similarity of the native peptide with the synthetic AKHs were tested by comparing the profiles on HPLC. The primary structures were studied using MALDI-TOF-MS/MS. The results of the investigation may be helpful in tracing the phylogeny of the insect orders and also for developing new generation insecticides.
Plants have evolved for over 400 million years and to defend themselves from insect attack many plant species and cultivars have developed an elegant protection mechanisms involving production of insect repellents and even insect toxic substances. Plants which use such mechanisms effectively to keep themselves free of insect infestation are called “insect resistant plants”. The exploration and use of such insect resistant plants in order to fight medicinal and agricultural insect pests is an integral part of mankind’s history. Use of plant extracts and powdered plant parts as insect repellant and insecticides goes back at least as far as the Roman Empire. For instance, there are reports that in 400 B.C. during Persian king Xerxes’ reign, the delousing procedure for children was with a powder obtained from the dry flowers of a plant known as pyrethrum (Tanacetum cinerariaefolium, Compositae).

Central to human relationships is trust. Human relationships are affected by conflict as much as trust is. To restore human relationships following conflicts, in particular intrastate, communal and ethno-religious conflicts, is to rebuild trust. This book tries to explore the role of trust in conflict transformation by analyzing the Baku Bae Peace Movement in Indonesia—a successful initiative to reconcile and transform the relationships between Christians and Muslims in an ethno-religious conflict on the island of Maluku. The book also aims to understand how trust can be integrated into the framework of conflict transformation. The analysis shows that trust is an essential component of conflict transformation, and building trust is not only a foundation but also a component of conflict intervention. Moreover, trust is essential for both the short-term and long-term goals of conflict transformation.
