CABI Book Info
Cover for Climate change and insect pests.

This book contains 14 chapters focusing on understanding climatic effects on agricultural and forest pest populations. The importance of insect pests in providing an excellent framework for evaluating climatic effects on a wide range of ecological systems are also discussed.

Cover for Climate change and insect pest distribution range.

The dynamics of species' distribution, in particular when it comes to predicting the outcomes of climate change-inflicted variations in the range distributions of insect pests. Several insect life history traits, such as survival, growth rate and voltinism, are likely to change in a warmer...

Cover for Species distribution modelling in predicting response to climate change.

Species distribution modelling comprises a range of widely used tools for predicting potential changes in insect pest species distributions with climate change. We review the current literature to see the effectiveness of different approaches, particularly in comparing predictions based on current...

Cover for Adaptive responses of plants to insect herbivores under climate change.

Global climate change, including the rise of CO2 emissions and global warming, are predicted to alter the composition of communities through differential colonization abilities between sessile plants and their mobile insect herbivores along latitudinal and elevation gradients. In particular, under...

Cover for Boreal woody species resistance affected by climate change.

Climate change undoubtedly affects the metabolism and resistance of woody plants, and results in changes in their competitive management. Due to low climatic niche evolution, trees and shrubs are slow to react to climate change. In addition, current studies show rather variable results. Therefore,...

Cover for Effects of climate change on the interactions between insect pests and their natural enemies.

All biological rates depend on temperature, as they are based on biochemical reactions. Hence, the same holds for feeding rates and their functional components. From a 'biologically relevant' scope, feeding rates increase exponentially with temperature. Recent studies suggest that this increase of...

Cover for Northern geometrids and climate change: from abiotic factors to trophic interactions.

The subarctic mountain birch forests have been periodically disturbed by geometrid moth outbreaks since at least the mid-19th century. The effects of these disturbances can be seen from landscape-level dieback of the birch forest to local-level changes in soil processes. Recent research efforts...

Cover for Pine wood nematode, pine wilt disease, vector beetle and pine tree: how a multiplayer system could reply to climate change.

The pine wood nematode, Bursaphelenchus xylophilus, constitutes a major threat to pine forests across the world. Under climatic conditions favourable to the expression of the pine wilt disease caused by the nematode, susceptible pine trees may die within a few months following nematode inoculation. ...

Cover for Physiological variation of insects in agricultural landscapes: potential impacts of climate change.

Understanding the physiological and behavioural responses of insects to climate variation is critical, for several reasons, of which three are perhaps most important. First, developing a deeper understanding of pest population dynamics and postharvest control requires information on thermal (and...

Cover for Climate change and biological control in agricultural systems: principles and examples from North America.

Biological control of pests is a key feature of integrated pest management programmes in many agroecosystems. An assessment of the potential impacts of climate change on biological control is critical but challenging, because biological control depends on interspecific interactions, which are...
