Invasive Insect Species publishes high-quality studies on the commercial impacts, the management of species, or the loss of ecosystem functioning from invasive predators, parisitoids, parasites, and pathogens.Read More
The Invasive Insect Species section of Frontiers in Insect Science publishes high-quality fundamental and applied research across the field of invasion biology for alien invasive insects and allied arthropods. Invasion biology seeks to answer broad questions about which species are most likely to be invasive, where are invasions most likely to be successful, what impact(s) are alien species likely to have, and how can invasive alien species best be managed.
Invasion biology is inherently cross-disciplinary. Areas covered by this section include, but are not limited to:
· Population/community/landscape ecology
· Population genetics and evolutionary biology
· Pest risk assessment and mapping
· Pest dynamics and climate change
· Early detection and monitoring plans
· Biological control
· Genetic biocontrol
· Area-wide and integrated pest management
· Economic impacts
· Environmental impacts
· Policy implications
All studies must contribute insights into the ecology or management of emerging invasive alien insects and arthropods. Reports dealing with the management of well-established alien insects in agriculture are better suited to our sister journal, Frontiers in Agronomy.
