The International Congress of Entomology holds regular symposia on insect life-cyles every four years. This book arose from papers contributed by most of the speakers at the latest symposium held in Vancouver, BC (Canada), July 1988. This volume provides a diverse array of studies on insect life-cycle evolution which can be broken down into three main levels of approach: (a) comparisons of genetic variation and covariation underlying life-cycle traits; (b) comparisons of variable phenotypes within and among populations of the same and/or related species; and (c) comparisons of habitat-specific traits regardless of relatedness. While the material is particularly relevant to scientists and researchers within this field, both undergraduate and graduate level students will find the material relevant to their studies.
