About this book

Insects undergo predictable changes in body form that are adaptations to seasonal changes in the environment during their life cycle, with periods of dormancy or migration away from hostile environments followed by metamorphosis.

The authors here present a comprehensive discussion of the broad range of insect responses to seasonality and a critical interpretation of the voluminous scientific literature on the natural history, genetics, evolution, and management of insect adaptations.

Media reviews

"A valuable addition to existing volumes in behaviour ecology and physiological ecology [...] The book is easy to read and to use for a reference, because of the many sections and subsections and because of three excellent indices. The definitions are well conceived and are stated in clear English [...] This volume is absolutely packed with information."
BioScience (November 1987)

"The authors [...] have effectively synthesized reams of data dealing with seasonal adaptations of insects, and have made many valuable suggestions for future research. This scholarly and well-indexed book should provide an important resource for many years."
Quarterly Review of Biology

"Makes available a vast and esoteric literature to researchers, especially students, who are seeking interesting questions to investigate [...] a gold mine of research opportunities."
Science

"No summarizing work comparable to the author's present book has so far been published in the world of literature."
Journal of Applied Entomology
