Because of their extremely small size, mites have been ignored during the development of major evolutionary and ecological theories. Yet mites routinely violate fundamental concepts such as heterochrony, sexual selection, the evolution of sex ratio, and ontogeny. Recent research methodologies have made it practical for the first time to perform experimental work with mites, and since they offer short generation times and rapid research results, they are arriving on the evolutionary scene with a splash.
This volume is a unique reference source and is suitable for those interested in exploring surprising and fascinating glimpses into the ecology and evolution of some tiny, diverse, and abundant denizons of our world _ Ecology 76(4)
