Ecological Modelling Applied to Entomology

  • The book combines real data and/or real phenomena with mathematical theory to show trends, ecological patterns and give some predictions

  • It provides examples of applications of mathematical modelling covering different areas of the entomology

  • The book discusses the essential ecological basis for implementing mathematical modelling in entomology taking into account pest management and conservation biology theory

  • Includes supplementary material: sn.pub/extras

Part of the book series: Entomology in Focus (ENFO, volume 1)
