The area of ecology that deals with changes in the density of organisms over time and that attempts to explain the causes of these changes is known as population dynamics. This chapter explores the concepts of population dynamics as they relate to forest insects, in order to better understand the causes of forest pest hisn-alarum.com by: 8. Mar 25,  · In this book, the authors analyze population dynamics of quite a narrow group of insects – forest defoliators. It is hoped that the methods proposed herein for the analysis of population dynamics of these species may be useful and effective for analyzing population dynamics of other animal species and their effects and role in global warming. The combination of empirical data and quantitative approaches, especially the use of mathematical modelling, is a powerful approach to describing and understanding insect population dynamics. In this Special Issue, we invite manuscripts that explore insect population dynamics.

S. Isaev, V. G. Soukhovolsky, O. V. Tarasova, E. N. Palnikova, A. V. Kovalev. In this book, the authors analyze population dynamics of quite a narrow group of insects forest defoliators. It is hoped that the methods proposed herein for the analysis of population dynamics of these species may be useful and effective for analyzing population dynamics of other animal species and their effects and role in global warming. Forests and Insects demonstrates that both these disciplines demand an understanding of population and community biology. The book covers such topics as colonization of trees by insects, population dynamics of forest insects, insect natural enemies, the effects of climate change and pollution on forest pests, spatial variation in the abundance. Population dynamics of various organisms, especially insects, are of particular concern because changes in population size affect human health, ecosystem services, and the quality of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. Hence, development of models to improve our ability to understand and predict changes in insect population abundances has a.
