Contents: Part 1 Genetics of life-cycle traits: evolution of insect life-cycles; the role of genetic analysis. Part 2 Evolution of life-cycle traits: use of selection to probe patterns of pleiotropy in fitness characters; phenology and demography in the pitcher-plant mosquito; developmental programmes and adaptive syndromes in insect life-cycles; coevolution between herbivorous insects and plants; size phylogeny and life-history in the evolution of feeding specialization in insect predators; opportunistic diapause in the subtropical ground cricket; evolution of mutualistic life cycles - yucca moths and fig wasps; testing hypotheses about the evolution of the mean phenotype in temporarily variable environments. Part 3 Co-ordination of life-cycle traits: insect herbivores; herbivory and plant succession; migration and co-ordination of life-cycles exemplified by lygaeidae bugs; competition and selection in habitat - the implications for insect life-cycles; facultative and obligatory diapause responses in three species of Burnet moths; the present and future of insect life-cycle evolution.
Responsibility: Francis Gilbert, (ed.).
