A Handbook of Approaches and Methods
by Michael J. Samways, Melodie A. McGeoch & Tim R. New
2010, 441 pages, 85 b/w photos, 60 line illustrations, tables. With up to a quarter of all insect species heading towards extinction over the next few decades, there is a pressing need to summarize the techniques available for measuring insect diversity in order to develop effective conservation strategies. This comprehensive resource outlines the main methods and techniques available to entomologists, providing a comprehensive synthesis for use by students, researchers and conservationists worldwide. Both modern and more ‘traditional’ methodologies are described, backed up by practical background information and a global range of examples. Many newer techniques are included which have not yet been described in the existing book literature.
The book is particularly relevant to postgraduate and advanced undergraduate students studying insect ecology, conservation biology and environmental management, as well as established researchers in these fields. It is also a valuable reference for nature conservation practitioners and professional entomologists worldwide.
Paperback; 6-1/4 x 9-3/8″.
