Radar Entomology: Observing Insect Flight and Migration by Alistair Drake,Don R. Reynolds

By Alistair Drake,Don R. Reynolds

a few of the world's so much critical agricultural pests are hugely migratory. by utilizing special-purpose radars we're supplied with insights into their circulation and the way they know about and navigate via their atmosphere. this article examines the behaviour and neighborhood adaptations of those species, in addition to the altitude of migration, focus of bugs in layers and the way they reply to huge and small-scale wind structures. The booklet relates radar commentary of insect stream to complementary and competing methodologies and surveys its services and barriers. It additionally bargains with the functions of those findings within the administration and forecasting of either pest and important bugs, and is a necessary reference for these operating in agricultural entomology and pest management.
