About this book

Invertebrate Conservation and Agricultural Ecosystems explores the diverse interests of invertebrate conservation and agricultural production. It is both an introduction to invertebrate conservation biology for agriculturists and an introduction to crop protection for conservation biologists, demonstrating how these two disparate fields may draw on each other for greater collective benefit. It draws on recent literature to show how invertebrate conservation in highly altered landscapes may be promoted and enhanced. The book deals with problems of, and approaches to, invertebrate conservation in highly managed agricultural ecosystems, and how biodiversity may be promoted without compromising agricultural production. It draws attention to the importance of invertebrates in agricultural systems and their role in ecosystem functions.


Provides the first detailed synthesis of more integrated or holistic management to promote invertebrate conservation in agroecosystems without unduly compromising priorities of any party


Broad overview of difficulties and priorities of invertebrate conservation in agricultural ecosystems, and how conservation may be harmonised increasingly with agricultural production


Designed for pest managers/agriculturists to appreciate better the aims of conservation biologists, and for conservation biologists to appreciate better the constraints and priorities of agricultural producers

Media reviews
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
