About the Authors
  • Insects are the most diverse and abundant animals that share our world, and conservation initiatives are increasingly needed and being implemented globally, to safe guard the wealth of individual species. This book provides sufficient background information, illustrated by examples from many parts of the world, to enable more confident and efficient progress towards the conservation of these ecologically indispensable animals. Writing for graduate students, academic researchers and professionals, Tim New describes the major ingredients for insect species management and conservation, and how these may be integrated into effective practical management and recovery plans.

    • Each chapter contains a concluding summary to highlight major points covered in the text
    • Provides practical advice to facilitate design and implementation of insect species conservation plans
    • Brings together previously scattered information to create a modern international synthesis of insect species conservation
