Recent years have witnessed great advances in the field of basic and applied entomology. Gradual developments of both theoretical and field-based studies during last few decades have changed the way researchers approach their work and the methods and tools they use. These have been equally matched by innovation through empirical studies and use of computer and geographic information systems. Forest Entomology reflects these new dimensions and perspectives with contributions from Indian entomologists and ecologists. Organized into 12 chapters, Forest Entomology covers some key areas in entomology. Included are taxonomy and ecology of poorly studied groups like leafhoppers, microlepidoptera and curculionids frontier areas of research like biogeography of insects impact of climate change on insect community and the ecological importance of belowground biodiversity. Real-world case studies on the impact of disturbances on insect diversity and usefulness of butterflies as indicator species are also presented.
