Insects are a diverse, numerous and important group in aquatic habitats, occupying key functional and ecological roles. This edited volume brings together acknowledged experts in often disparate fields ranging from physiology through ecology to evolution to consider in a unified manner the challenges facing insect populations in aquatic environments and how they have adapted to achieve such prominence in virtually all habitats. It will be of central interest to researchers and students in aquatic insects and general entomology.


1: Surviving with drought: ecological consequences and the effects of drought on aquatic insects 23: Saline-water insects: ecology, physiology and evolution 3: Aquatic insect adaptations to winter cold and ice 4: The effect of flood disturbance on invertebrate populations and communities 5: Life-history and behavioural adaptation to disturbance 6: Life history tradeoffs and time constraints in temporary habitats 7: Scale dependence of population responses to spatial environmental variability 8: Structure of stream invertebrate populationl ife-history stages What is the spatials? 9: Dispersal behaviour at different invertebrates 10: Cannibalism and population regulation in dragonfly larvae systems 11: Ecological and evolutionary physiology of flight in aquatic insects 12: Insects movement and dispersion within streams 13: Habitat constraints and the generation of diversity in freshwater invertebrates 14: Oviposition habitat selection in aquatic habitats 15: Polarization vision in aquatic insects and polarized ecological traps
