Symposium: Insect Behavioral Ecology - '93: The Conservation Challenge in Agriculture and the Role of Entomologists

  • Tonya Van Hook

Abstract

Conservationists and agriculturists must work together toward the common goal of satisfying growing human population needs while maintaining natural resources and ecological processes critical to long-term human survival. The study of invertebrates has perhaps the greatest potential for contributing to this goal through theoretical, practical, and educational advancements. I discuss my view of the resulting challenge to entomologists with emphasis on insect conservation, sustainable agriculture, and environmental education.
