The abundance of insects can change dramatically from generation togeneration; these generational changes may occur within a growingseason or over a period of years. Such extraordinary densitychanges or "outbreaks" may be abrupt and ostensibly random, orpopulation peaks may occur in a more or less cyclic fashion. Theycan be hugely destructive when the insect is a crop pest or carriesdiseases of humans, farm animals, or wildlife. Knowledge of thesetypes of population dynamics and computer models that may helppredict when they occur are very important.

This important new book revisits a subject not thoroughlydiscussed in such a publication since 1988 and brings aninternational scale to the issue of insect outbreaks.

Insect Outbreaks Revisited is intended for seniorundergraduate and graduate students in ecology, population biologyand entomology, as well as government and industry scientists doingresearch on pests, land managers, pest management personnel,extension personnel, conservation biologists and ecologists, andstate, county and district foresters.
