Summary:
This book, which is based on the main papers presented at the Royal Entomological Society's 20th Symposium held in September 1999, reviews the developments in the study of insect movements, particularly of flight. It contains 19 chapters discussing flight mechanisms (e.g. flight biomechanics, physiology and behaviour), foraging movements, migration, evolution of movement strategies, interactions between dispersal  Read more...
