Insect Ecomorphology: Linking Functional Insect Morphology to Ecology and Evolution offers up-to-date knowledge and understanding on the morphology of insects and the functional basis of their diversity. This book covers the form and function of insect body structures synthesized with their physiological performance capabilities, biological roles, and evolutionary histories. Written by international experts, this book explores the ecomorphology of functional systems such as insect feeding, locomotion, sensing, and reproduction. The combination of conceptual and review chapters, methodological approaches, and case studies enables readers to delve into active research fields and attain a general idea of the explanatory power of the form-function-performance paradigm.

The book uncovers key structures of the different regions of the insect body, elucidates how they function, and investigates their ecological and evolutionary implications. It will be a vital resource for entomologists, biologists, and zoologists, especially those seeking to better understand the morphology and physiological impacts tying insects to environments and evolution.
