Many of the world's most serious agricultural pests are highly migratory. Through the use of special-purpose radars we are provided with insights into their movement and how they learn about and navigate through their environment. This text examines the behaviour and regional variations of these species, as well as the altitude of migration, concentration of insects in layers and how they respond to large and small-scale wind systems. The book relates radar observation of insect movement to complementary and competing methodologies and surveys its capabilities and limitations. It also deals with the applications of these findings in the management and forecasting of both pest and beneficial insects, and will be an essential reference for those working in agricultural entomology and pest management. It is suitable for researchers and practitioners in agricultural entomology and pest management, ecologists, animal behaviourists, and radar meteorologists and ornithologists.
