Ecology of Insects: Concepts and Applications

 Autorzy: Martin R. Speight, Mark D. Hunter, Allan D. Watt

Provides a sound background on insect evolutionary ecology, population dynamics and environmental interactions. These concepts are subsequently applied to a number of topical issues, including climate change, the conservation of biodiversity, epidemiology and pest management.

Fully revised and updated to include new topical study areas, the second edition of the successful text the Ecology of Insects provides a balanced treatment of the theory and practice of pure and applied insect ecology.

Includes new topical areas of insect ecology and provides greater coverage of physiological, genetic, molecular, and ecosystem aspects of insect ecology.
Concepts include the foundations of evolutionary ecology and population dynamics in ecosystem science as they are applied to topics such as climate change, conservation and biodiversity, epidemiology and pest management.
Fully updated and revised throughout, this new edition refers to primary literature and real world examples.
