About this book

The history of interest and practice in insect conservation is summarised and traced through contributions from many of the leaders in the discipline, to provide the first broad global account of how insects have become incorporated into considerations of conservation. The essays collectively cover the genesis and development of insect conservation, emphasising its strong foundation within the northern temperate regions and the contrasts with much of the rest of the world. Major present-day scenarios are discussed, together with possible developments and priorities in insect conservation for the future.

Reviews

“New's Insect Conservation: Past, Present and Prospects, gives the reader … a sweeping vision of the history, present-day research, and future directions of insect conservation. … the authors explore the pitfalls and challenges of insect conservation and  present  new directions for the discipline to take. … It succeeds wonderfully in providing an in-depth coverage of the field of insect conservation, and it is certain to be the leading text for college students and conservation researchers for years to come.” (Scott R. Shaw, Conservation Biology, Vol. 29 (5), 2015)
