Fruit flies (Diptera: Tephritidae) are among the most destructive agricultural pests in the world, eating their way through acres and acres of citrus and other fruits at an alarming rate and forcing food and agriculture agencies to spend millions of dollars in control and management measures. But until now, the study of fruit flies has been traditionally biased towards applied aspects (e.g., management, monitoring, and mass rearing)-understandable, given the tremendous economic impact of this species. This work is the first that comprehensively addresses the study of the phylogeny and the evolution of fruit fly behaviour. An international group of highly renowned scientists review the current state of knowledge and include considerable new findings on various aspects of fruit fly behaviour, phylogeny and related subjects in a definitive treatment, covering all behaviours in a broad range of tephritids.
