This up-to-date reference book discusses the effects of climate change on the biodiversity of insect pests. The changing climate and agricultural intensification practices impact negatively on insect biodiversity. The book explains the significance of insect pests for evaluating climatic impacts on a wide range of ecological systems. It covers the effect of climate change on pollinators, and household and agricultural insect pests. It explains how climate-smart agriculture can enhance productivity and food security.
- Reviews the effects of climate change on plant-insect interactions
- Includes topics such insect biodiversity informatics and conservation
- Discusses food security, pest management, and beneficial and social insects
- Covers topics like precision agriculture and climate-smart agriculture
- Provides insights on the relation between agriculture intensification and insect biodiversity
This book is meant for scientists, researchers, and students working in the fields of agriculture, entomology, ecology, plant science, environmental biology, and biotechnology.
