Description & Coverage
Description:

The surge of urbanization in contemporary society has set in motion a variety of challenges, particularly in the relationship between insects and urban environments. As concrete landscapes expand and human influence reshapes natural habitats, the consequences on insect populations and their ecological roles become increasingly apparent. The bustling urban sprawl disrupts traditional insect habitats and behaviors, presenting a serious issue that requires comprehensive exploration and understanding.

In Urban Entomology Across Varied Environments, this multifaceted challenge takes center stage as leading experts and researchers unite to unravel the dynamics between insects and the evolving urban landscape. The book navigates through a diverse range of urban environments, from city centers to suburban expanses and rural-urban interfaces. It goes beyond the conventional focus on pests, delving into the broader ecological roles of insects, including pollination, decomposition, and biocontrol. The aim is to shed light on the indispensable services provided by insects and their contributions to urban biodiversity.

As urban landscapes continue to undergo unprecedented change, Urban Entomology Across Varied Environments serves as an invaluable resource. It not only caters to scholars and professionals in entomology, ecology, and urban planning but also extends its relevance to policymakers and public health professionals. By addressing the challenges and opportunities presented by urban insect populations, the book provides practical solutions for navigating the relationships between insects and urban life in the 21st century, fostering a balanced coexistence.
