With up to a quarter of all insect species heading towards extinction over the next few decades, there is now a pressing need to summarize the techniques available for measuring insect diversity in order to develop effective conservation strategies. Insect Conservation outlines the main methods and techniques available to entomologists, providing a comprehensive synthesis for use by graduate students, researchers and practising conservationists worldwide. Both modern and more 'traditional' methodologies are described, backed up by practical background information and a global range of examples. Many newer techniques are included which have not yet been described in the existing book literature. This book will be particularly relevant to postgraduate and advanced undergraduate students taking courses in insect ecology, conservation biology and environmental management, as well as established researchers in these fields. It will also be a valuable reference for nature conservation practitioners and professional entomologists worldwide.

MEDIA REVIEWS
It should be on the bookshelf of every practising conservationist or environmental manager and will be a great source-book for undergraduates, postgraduates and established researchers.It will certainly be on the essential reading list of the MSc in Invertebrate Ecology and Conservation that we run at Staffordshire! * John W. Glover, Journal of Insect Conservation *
Insect Conservation's greatest strength is its careful descriptions of field methods that no longer are commonly taught. * Ecology *
this is so packed with information on so many practical aspects of insect conservation ... It deserves to be available to researchers not only in university and college libraries, but also on the shelves in field stations and of nature reserve managersas well as professional and citizen scientist entomologists. * David L. Hawksworth, Biodiversity and Conservation *
