Combining breadth of coverage with detail, this logical and cohesive introduction to insect ecology couples concepts with a broad range of examples and practical applications. It explores cutting-edge topics in the field, drawing on and highlighting the links between theory and the latest empirical studies. The sections are structured around a series of key topics, including behavioral ecology; species interactions; population ecology; food webs, communities and ecosystems; and broad patterns in nature. Chapters progress logically from the small scale to the large; from individual species through to species interactions, populations and communities. Application sections at the end of each chapter outline the practicality of ecological concepts and show how ecological information and concepts can be useful in agriculture, horticulture and forestry. Each chapter ends with a summary, providing a brief recap, followed by a set of questions and discussion topics designed to encourage independent and creative thinking.

'Insect Ecology is a real magnum opus! It is rare to see such diverse and comprehensive coverage, with coupled historical and modern perspectives. This book is destined to be an instant classic.' Anurag Agrawal, Cornell University

'The coverage in most sections is breathtakingly thorough and the writing is lucid and well targeted to the audience. The new textbook will instantly supplant the currently available texts on the topic as the authoritative source and the best one on which to base courses.' Sanford D. Eigenbrode, University of Idaho

'Price's past editions are the standards for insect ecology texts. No other insect ecology text comes close. The new edition will be the standard by which all others are measured.' Robert K. D. Peterson, Montana State University

'The strengths are in the approach, the organization, the presentation of material in an interesting and clear way, and the relevance as brought out by examples and applications.' Sherilyn Smith, Le Moyne College

'This extraordinary book is a joy to read. Not only is it the best synthesis of what has been learned in recent years about the ecology and evolution of insects, it is also one of the best syntheses of the fields of behavioral ecology, population ecology, and community ecology. It is a work of immense scholarship and insight into the ecological and evolutionary processes that have shaped the life histories, dynamics [and] interactions of the most diverse group of animals on earth. It is indispensable for anyone who wants to understand the processes shaping the web of life in natural and human-altered ecosystems. Chapter by chapter, the book shows how and why Darwin's entangled bank has become so entangled.' John N. Thompson, University of California, Santa Cruz

'This fresh edition of Price's excellent textbook has acquired co-authors who have strengthened it further … This textbook is full of enthusiasm for the amazing diversity of insect natural history. It expertly imparts basics such as population dynamics. At the same time, there are big concepts that Price has pioneered, such as the far-reaching consequences of living in or on a host organism, and interactions across three or more trophic levels.' Mark Westoby, Macquarie University

'This textbook is an excellent new choice in the field … [it] … skilfully combines depth and breadth into a useable and thoughtfully organized whole, and will undoubtedly be well received as an up-to-date and cohesive introduction to the field for many in the next generation of insect ecologists.' Louie H. Yang, The Quarterly Review of Biology

'Despite being tailored for use in teaching, Insect Ecology will also be of tremendous use to researchers working in areas related to insect ecology … [it] will prove valuable not only as a textbook for graduate students and advanced undergraduates but also as a reference for practising ecologists and, especially, applied ecologists who want or need a reminder of the ecological foundations of pest management.' Entomologia Experimentalis et Applicata

'Insect Ecology is a modern, user-friendly, broad introduction to the ecology of insects, a must-have for scientists and students alike.' Basic and Applied Ecology

'Insect Ecology is first and foremost an extremely useful book. By making an enormous amount of material accessible and interesting it can serve as a tremendous textbook for many potential classes and be a terrific reference book for those who continue work in related areas. No matter the aspect of insect ecology, this book has a clear and straightforward overview of the subject along with abundant examples and references that will stimulate ideas for research and teaching.' Ecology

'… this new book provides a needed update to a classic text. I am sure this text will quickly become a reference of choice for a new generation of insect ecologists.' John F. Tooker, American Entomologist

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent coverage of concepts 17. Februar 2012
Von naranjita - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
This book does a great job of covering some major themes in insect ecology. It takes excellent approaches to explaining and interconnecting concepts within the broader applications of ecology. If you are interested in insect-herbivore interactions, those chapters cover the material extensively. I am planning to use this in an advanced undergraduate course on insect ecology. I highly recommend this new book over the others available in the market because it does so much more than just reiterate typical general ecology principles by giving examples on insects.
5.0 von 5 Sternen You never knew insect life was this complicated! 4. Dezember 2013
Von Dennis Leinbaugh - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I have read many books on insects but this is only the second rigorous text book on Entomology. It is exactly what I have been looking for (including being somewhat over my head). I describes insect needs, behavior, communications and interactions with other insects of the same and different species and plants. I am only up to page 143 but there is no end to the variety of relationships and communications that have evolved between plants, insects herbivores, parasitoids, hyper parasitoids and predators. There are only a few photographs but there are many examples illustrating what is being covered which cite specific species.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent Resource on Insect Ecology 13. Februar 2013
Von E. Ramos - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Very informative and thorough with plenty of useful examples. Highly recommended for prospective ecologists, either as a strong hobby or studying at the collegiate level.
5.0 von 5 Sternen A Fine Textbook of Insect Ecology 22. Februar 2012
Von William Licht - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I've gone through the first six chapters so far, and have found it to be a very thorough text. The authors did a great job keeping the text's flow smooth, making it an easy read for those interested in the subject matter. I may present further statements after completing the text.
