DESCRIPTION

<p>Insects arefundamentally important in the ecology of terrestrial habitats. What is more, theyaffect diverse human activities, notably agriculture, as well as human healthand wellbeing. Meanwhile, much of modern biology has been developed usinginsects as subjects of study.</p><p>To reflect this, ouraim with <i>Entomology in Focus</i> is tooffer a range of titles that either capture different aspects of the diverse biologyof insects or their management, or that offer updates and reviews of particularspecies or taxonomic groups that are important for agriculture, the environmentor public health. </p>The series resultsfrom an agreement between Springer and the Entomological Society of Brazil(SEB) and as such may lean towards tropical entomology. The aim throughout is toprovide reference texts that are simple in their conception and organizationbut that offer up-to-date syntheses of the respective areas, offer suggestionsof future directions for research (and for management where relevant) and thatdon?t shy away from offering considered opinions. <p></p><p><b>Editorial Committee</b></p><p>Series Editor <b>Sam Elliot</b> is Associate Professor inEntomology at the Universidade Federal de Vi?osa (Brazil), also coordinates thePostgraduate Programme in Entomology currently rated maximally by the relevantauthority in Brazil (CAPES) and is Associate Editor at <i>Ecology and Evolution</i>. He works on diverse aspects ofinsect-microbe interactions, with emphases on leafcutter ants, noctuidcaterpillars, triatomine bugs, entomopathogenic fungi and microbial control ofpests.</p><p><b>Adam Hart</b> is Professor of Science Communication at the University ofGloucestershire (UK).
