Insect conservation biology : proceedings of the Royal Entomological Society's 23nd symposium by Royal Entomological Society of London( )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 673 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In an age of unprecedented human impact on the environment, insect conservation biology is of increasing importance. Due to their abundance, diversity and rapid response to environmental changes, insects are also valuable indicators of wider biodiversity, and make excellent models for conservation research and monitoring. Over 50 international experts have contributed to this authoritative and up-to-date compendium, covering many topics including climate change, habitat management, ecosystem processes, conservation genetics, impact of GM technology, and the integration of insects into wider conservation agendas."--Publisher's website
Insect evolutionary ecology : proceedings of the Royal Entomological Society's 22nd Symposium by Royal Entomological Society of London( )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 647 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These proceedings contain 18 papers that discuss topics on speciation and adaptation; life history, evolution, phenotypic plasticity and genetics; sexual selection and reproductive biology; insect-plant interactions; insect-natural enemy interactions; and social insects. A series of empirical case studies in evolutionary ecology using insects as model systems are also presented
Aquatic insects : challenges to populations : proceedings of the Royal Entomological Society's 24th symposium by Royal Entomological Society of London( )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 632 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Insects are a diverse, numerous and important group in aquatic habitats, occupying key functional and ecological roles. This volume brings together acknowledged experts in often disparate fields ranging from physiology and ecology to evolution. Chapters consider in a unified manner the challenges facing insect populations in the aquatic medium and how they have adapted to achieve such prominence in virtually all habitats. All stages of the life-cycle are covered and biotic, abiotic and evolutionary issues are brought together in a volume which provides an up-to-date review of research. It will be of particular use to researchers and students alike who have an interest in aquatic insects, and factors influencing their survival and success."--BOOK JACKET
Insect movement : mechanisms and consequences : proceedings of the Royal Entomological Society's 20th Symposium by Royal Entomological Society of London( )

5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 598 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, which is based on the main papers presented at the Royal Entomological Society's 20th Symposium held in September 1999, reviews the developments in the study of insect movements, particularly of flight. It contains 19 chapters discussing flight mechanisms (e.g. flight biomechanics, physiology and behaviour), foraging movements, migration, evolution of movement strategies, interactions between dispersal rates, population structure and gene flow, and the effects of climate change on geographical distribution

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Entomologists have played a leading role in developing a theoretical basis to Population Ecology, but we still do not have adequate experimental and observational proof for many of the theoretical ideas that have been proposed. As a result, the subject has been beset with arguments for more than 50 years. This volume attempts to reconcile some of these controversies, while also reviewing the current state of our knowledge. The editors have drawn together an international list of contributors whose views reflect a range of opinions on how natural populations are stabilised. They have succeeded in producing a book that both covers the main alternative views in population theory and contains some of the best recent field studies of insect populations." "This Royal Entomological Society Symposium volume will be of great interest to all entomologists and ecologists, particularly those who wish to know more about Population Dynamics."--Jacket
