  • In contrast to other animals, humans sense their world chiefly by vision, sound, and touch. We have, in general, a remarkably undeveloped sense of smell, and so it is not surprising that we fail to appreciate how important chemical signals are in the lives of other organisms. Chemical signals and cues serve insects in numerous ways, including sexual advertisement, social organization, defense, and finding and recognizing resources.

  • An Ecosystem Approach provides a modern perspective of insect ecology that integrates two approaches traditionally used to study insect ecology: evolutionary and ecosystem. This integration substantially broadens the scope of insect ecology and contributes to prediction and resolution of the effects of current environmental changes, as these affect and are affected by insects. The third edition includes an updated and expanded synthesis of feedback and interactions between insects and their environment.

  • The present work is a review of all the organisms thus far reported from Lebanese amber. Various paleoentomologists have contributed to the study of Lebanese amber insects. Studies by Paul Whalley, once at the British Museum, have been especially useful. However, works like ours are also made possible by those who go into the field and search for amber sites. Scientists are indebted to these individuals since, without their zeal, there would not be many scientific descriptions of amber fossils or books like the present one....

  • This short book is about conserving insects, the most diverse and abundant animals that share our world. In particular, it is about the common focus of conserving individual species of insects. This so-called ‘fine filter’ (or ‘fine grain’) level of conservation parallels much conservation effort for better-understood groups of animals such as mammals and birds, for which species-focused conservation exercises are commonplace.

  • Some say that ‘the cockroach’ will be the last species on Earth to survive. Then it has been calculated that one gravid aphid, left to reproduce with zero mortality, will, after one year, cover the globe with an aphid layer over 140 km thick. Not forgetting too, that flies and fleas vector disease. So, why should we even consider conserving insects? Quite simply, without insects, the likelihood is that the world as we know it would be radically changed in a matter of days. Besides, it is only a tiny minority of insects that harm our lives.

  • Pest and disease management continues to be an important challenge to the agricultural community. Confronted with the shifts in pest pressure and the rise in new pest and crop problems, coupled with public concern over pesticide use and more stringent environmental regulations, today’s crop producer must exhibit good stewardship and stay current with new technologies in order to produce high-quality crops in a profitable manner.

  • Chapter 7 INSECT SYSTEMATICS: PHYLOGENY AND CLASSIfiCATION Because there are so many guides to the identity and classification of birds, mammals, and flowers, it is tempting to think that every organism in the living world is known. However, if we compared different books, treatments will vary, perhaps concerning the taxonomic status of a geographical.

  • This book is part of the Green Chemistry series published by the Royal Society of Chemistry, and is designed to provide a modern overview of the current status of insecticides. We present the current approaches for insect pest control as green alternatives to classical agrochemicals, which should be of interest to a vast group of researchers: agrochemists, biochemists, chemists, toxicologists, etc. Throughout the book, the different approaches to pest control which involve ‘‘greener chemicals’’ in particular are emphasized.
