9780198515494: Insect Physiological Ecology: Mechanisms and Patterns

This book provides a modern, synthetic overview of interactions between insects and their environments from a physiological perspective that integrates information across a range of approaches and scales. It shows that evolved physiological responses at the individual level are translated into coherent physiological and ecological patterns at larger, even global scales. This is done by examining in detail the ways in which insects obtain resources from the environment, process these resources in various ways, and turn the results into energy which alloews them to regulate their internal environment as well as cope with evvironmental extremes of temperture and water availability. The book demonstrates that physiological responses are not only characterized by substantial temporal variation, but also show coherent variation across several spatial scales. At the largest, global scale, there appears to be substantial variation associated with the hemisphere in which insects are found. Such variation has profound implication as well as responses to climate change, and these implications are explicitly discussed. The book provides a novel integration of the understanding gained from broad-scale field studies of many species and the more narrowly focused laboratory investigations of model organisms. In so doing it reflects the growing realization that an integration of mechanistic and large-scale comparative physiology can result in unexpected insights into the diversity of insects.

Review:

... this work does present a great deal of original data and is likely to become required reading for anyone studying entomology the level of first degree upwards. * The Entomologist's Record * For those who wish to take their entomological studies that bit further, this is a book well worth reading. Though the subject covered is complex, to say the least, the presentation of this work makes it relatively easy reading. * The Entomologist's Record * This exceptional book is clearly written, well organized, and rich in data from primary sources. As well as being suitable for professional biologists, this novel volume would provide a stimulating basis for an upper-level undergraduate or graduate-level seminar seeking to explore the interface between ecology and physiology. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-level undergraduates and above - R. E. Lee Jr., Miami University
