The third edition of Insect Ecology: 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. This updated material and a new chapter on applications of insect ecology to social and environmental issues effectively demonstrates how evolutionary and ecosystem approaches complement each other, with the intent of stimulating further integration of these approaches in experiments that address insect roles in ecosystems. Effective management of ecosystem resources depends on evaluation of the complex, often complementary, effects of insects on ecosystem conditions, as well as insect responses to changing conditions.

Full coverage of ecosystem structure and function balanced with essential background on evolutionary aspects
New chapter on applications to issues such as pest management, ecosystem restoration, invasive species and environmental changes

Tercera edición revisada y actualizada. Uno de los pocos libros que consigue comentar de forma integrada las adaptaciones de los insectos a las condiciones ambientales, mediante su capacidad de alterar sustancialmente los ambientes donde viven. Esta tercera edición sintetiza los últimos estudios que analizan la interacción entre insectos y medio ambiente. Incluye un nuevo capítulo sobre las aplicaciones de la ecología de los insectos al conocimiento de temas medioambientales y sociales. Este libro es una importante herramienta para estudiantes y profesionales de entomología, ecología y otras disciplinas relacionadas.
