Knowledge of insect movement, particularly of flight, is crucial to our understanding of the great ecological and evolutionary success of insects. The last 20 years have seen many advances in this subject area. New fields have arisen, such as metapopulation theory, and dramatic developments have taken place in methods of studying movement, as a result of new techniques in molecular biology and radar monitoring. There have also been advances in our knowledge of flight-related physiology and behaviour. This book, which is based on the main papers presented at the Royal Entomological Society's 20th Symposium held in September 1999, brings us up to date with these developments. It contains chapters on: - flight mechanisms - foraging movements - migration - the evolution of movement strategies - the interactions between dispersal rates, population structure and gene flow - the effects of climate change on geographical distribution It is essential reading for entomologists, and of interest to those researching animal behaviour, physiology, ecology and genetics.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"It will be essential reading for all entomologists looking for an overview of advances in the study of insect movement since the publication of the 1973 symposium volume and a worthy addition to the Royal Entomological Society's series of symposium volumes providing authoritative reviews of important aspects of entomology."--Journal of Applied Entomology
"In my opinion, this book is required reading and should be in the library of any serious entomologist or biologist who has an inclination toward the emerging field of aerobiology, into which a large portion of the material is destined to be subsumed."--American Entomologist
"I find this book one of the best texts I have read in years. It immerses the reader in the problem of insect flight and wing evolution; it informs the reader on orientation mechanisms, on the many causes as well as consequences of insect migrations and it has the 'finger on the pulse' with regard to gene flow and changing global climates."--Entomologica Fennica
