Climate change, disturbance events, invasive species, and patterns of land use are among key drivers that interact to impact the distribution, abundance, and evolution of forest insects in a changing world. This Special Issue of Insects will broadly address the effects of global change on ecology and management of insects along a gradient of wilderness, managed, plantation, and urban forests. We invite submissions, including reviews and primary research reports, that address effects and implications of environmental change on insects in forest ecosystems including community and population ecology, biodiversity and conservation, biological invasions, ecosystem services, and pest management.
