The evolution of insect mating systems by Royal Entomological Society of London( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Insects display a wide diversity of mating and social behaviours. Studying these systems provides insights into a wide range of evolutionary and behavioural questions, such as the evolution of sex, sexual selection, sexual conflict, and parental care. This edited volume provides an update of the book, The Evolution of Insect Mating Systems (Thornhill and Alcock, 1983). This new volume brings the empirical and conceptual scope of the original book fully up to date, incorporating the new knowledge and research of the last 30 years. It explores the evolution of complex forms of sex determination in insects, and the role of sexual selection in shaping the evolution of mating systems. Selection arising via male contest competition and female choice (both before and after copulation) are discussed, as are the roles of parasites and pathogens in mediating the strength of sexual selection, and the role that parental care plays in successful reproduction

Insect populations in theory and in practice : 19th Symposium of the Royal Entomological Society 10-11 September 1997 at the University of Newcastle by Royal Entomological Society of London( )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Insects are by far the largest group of animals on Earth, with over a million described species, and they occupy a wide range of ecological niches - they may be herbivores, predators, parasites or decomposers. Some are of particular economic importance as pests of agriculture and forestry, as vectors of animal and human disease, or as species of interest to wildlife conservation. Thus an understanding of the processes determining their numbers is of considerable practical value. <br/> 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. <br/> 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
The vespoid wasps : (Tiphiidae, Mutillidae, Sapygidae, Scoliidae and Vespidae) of the British Isles by Michael E Archer( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A general introduction is provided to the natural history and extermal morphology for the following families of the Vespoidea: Tiphiidae, Mutillidae, Sapgyidae, Scoliidae and Vespidae including subfamilies Eumeninae, Polistinae and Vespinae. A checklist is given for the 45 species that have been recorded from the British Isles. Keys to the families, genera and species, together with diagnostic illustrations, are provided. Notes are given on the preparation of speciments for identification. Species profiles include information on British and overseas distribution, habitats, adult activity period, nesting characterisitcs, prey, host records and flower visited. -- Provided by publisher

Aquatic insects : challenges to populations : proceedings of the Royal Entomological Society's 24th symposium by Royal Entomological Society of London( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 2 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
