Overview

This book serves as an introduction to invertebrate conservation biology for agriculturists and to crop protection for conservation biologists. Demonstrating how the two disparate fields may interact for greater collective benefit, it draws on recent literature to reveal how invertebrate conservation in highly altered landscapes may be promoted and enhanced.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"In my opinion, conservationalists must work directly with farmers and other agricultural managers to educate them on the importance of these small and often disregarded species and work together to protect them. Invertebrate Conservation and Agricultural Ecosystems is a great step in that direction."
Scott Hoffman Black

"I am confident that this text will be a central reference for anyone working in, or interested in, both conservation and agriculture. I hope it will captivate others with the challenges and opportunities that await them."
John Losey, BioScience

"Many researchers and practitioners in the fields of ecology and pest management will find Invertebrate Conservation and Agricultural Ecosystems to be worthwhile reading. It may also be useful as a textbook in conservation biology or an advanced ecology course, as assigned reading in a graduate colloquium, and as supplemental reading for a landscape ecology class. With its numerous examples and up-to-date citations, the book makes a useful reference and deserves to be on the bookshelves of applied ecologists who are working to devise, test, and implement agricultural practices that combine sound pest management with the preservation of invertebrate biodiversity."
Louis S. Hesler, Entomological Society of America
