Call For Papers

The class Insecta is the largest group of animals, with more than 1 million described species. The outstanding diversity of insects contributes to the important position they occupy in terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, specifically the essential role they play within a thriving agricultural sector by contributing to overall ecosystem health. Depending on the species, insects act as herbivores, decomposers, prey, predators, and pollinators; however, most major agricultural pests are also insects. This group is greatly influenced by environmental conditions, which need to be properly managed.
Managing insect biodiversity on agricultural land is important from both a conservation and commercial perspective as their presence can positively impact ecosystems through prey-predator interaction, soil enrichment, and bio-indicative behaviors. The evolutionary success of insects is based on a number of adaptations, but a complete understanding of them is still lacking. It is therefore necessary to improve the classification of this group through comprehensive morphological, phylogenetic, ecological, and biogeographical studies.

This Special Issue is intended to highlight recent research that has been carried out to further our understanding of insect distribution across varying landscapes, and how insect disturbances are impacted by environmental conditions. We aim to show how these discoveries will help us to understand the group’s diversity and their ecological association with biotic and abiotic conditions. Building on these studies, this research topic further adds to available insect records that support development and sustainable management strategies.

Due to the lack of knowledge regarding major insect groups (Coleoptera, Hemiptera, Hymenoptera, and Lepidoptera), we welcome primary research and reviews carried out in diverse ecological regions. This will further help in the calculations of species and their abundance loss, ultimately contributing towards conserving the insect fauna.
