Insect Outbreaks Revisited
Whether you are interested in cutting-edge design of agroecosystems for a nation's food security, modelling the spread of invasive insects under climate change scenarios, quelling devastating urban tree die-offs through innovation rather than toxic materials, probing the powerful secrets of the microbial community in an insect's gut, or discovering the truth about genetically-modified pesticidal plants - Insect Outbreaks Revisited will answer your questions and stimulate new ideas. With chapters by top scientists and rising stars in insect physiology, evolution, population dynamics and ecology, this book provides a stimulating collection of perspectives on why and when to expect outbreaks of insects in managed and unmanaged ecosystems, what to focus on as causes, and how to manage and mitigate any adverse consequences.
