    Description: These proceedings contain papers on insect conservation biology that are classified under 3 themes: (1) the current status of insect conservation, and major avenues for progress and hindrances (6 papers); (2) insects as model organisms in conservation biology (6 papers); and (3) future directions in insect conservation biology (6. Thus, maintenance of habitat quality, continuity, heterogeneity and connectedness are recurrent themes in insect conservation biology. The field of insect conservation has undergone rapid development in the last 30 years or so, with particular acceleration of pace since the Royal Entomological Society last met to review this topic some 16 years.

    Insect Conservation A Handbook of Approaches and Methods Michael J. Samways, Melodie A. McGeoch, and Tim R. New Techniques in Ecology & Conservation. Authored by a team of world-renowned entomologists; Intensely practical, concentrating largely on methods. This book will be particularly relevant to postgraduate and advanced undergraduate students taking courses in insect ecology, conservation biology and environmental management, as well as established researchers in these fields. It will also be a valuable reference for nature conservation practitioners and professional entomologists worldwide.

Conservation biology is the management of nature and of Earth's biodiversity with the aim of protecting species, their habitats, and ecosystems from excessive rates of extinction and the erosion of biotic interactions.

Journal of Insect. Conservation biology is fast emerging as a major new discipline, which incorporates biological principles in the design of effective strategies for the sustainable management of populations, species and entire ecosystems.

This beautifully illustrated textbook introduces students to conservation biology, the science of preserving biodiversity. Insect conservation biology, as a field, has its own asymmetries, and they are reflected in this book.

Butterfly studies abound, but work on other, less charismatic groups is less common. The hyperdiversity of many insect and other invertebrate groups along with corresponding lack of taxonomic expertise discourages conservation biologists from Author: John E.

Hafernik. The key to insect conservation is to protect and - where necessary - to enhance or create habitats throughout the landscape, so that even the least mobile species can find somewhere to live when conditions become locally unsuitable.

More information about habitat conservation is available. 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. "Insect Conservation Biology" covers a wide range of topics from single species to landscape conservation, and from rare butterflies to the benefits-and-risks of biocontrol agents.

The approach is both positive and realistic, with insects being discussed in the contexts of sustainable development, agroecology and monitoring environmental change/5(3).NEW TO THIS EDITION: * New topics such as elemental defense by plants, chaotic models, molecular methods to measure disperson, food web relationships, and more * Expanded sections on plant defenses, insect learning, evolutionary tradeoffs, conservation biology and more * Includes more than new references * More than 40 new full-color figures.With up to a quarter of all insect species heading towards extinction over the next few decades, there is now a pressing need to summarize the techniques available for measuring insect diversity in order to develop effective conservation strategies.
