Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Insects represent the largest and most diverse group of living organisms and are implicated in a wide spectrum of interactions within the environment that they inhabit. Understanding how insects adopt an appropriate adaptive response to changes in their environment will aid in conserving nature and ecosystem services and is also of benefit for agriculture and forestry. Insect–environment interactions comprise complex associations, ranging from symbiosis and pollination, to (multi)trophic relations and co-evolution of defenses, or to nutrient re-cycling and response to climate change. For this Special Issue, we invite the submission of original research papers and mini-reviews covering all aspects of insect–environment interactions, both in natural and agricultural systems.
