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