Ecological Methods: With Particular Reference to the Study of Insect Populations
Ecological methods : with particular reference to the study of insect populations, Ecological methods for estimating insect populations using probabilistic methods. Expand
In this Address, the author will attempt some quantification, but will not be able to emulate those former Presidents who have been able to provide a definitative synthesis of a field or of their own studies, and his offering can be but a small beginning, an indication of the type of characteristics the authors should quantify.

Tactics, strategies and templets*
The science of ecology has developed greatly over the last few decades, and recently many have sought theoretical concepts that would bring a coherence to the authors' subject - to avoid being washed out to sea in an immense tide of unrelated information. Expand
Studies on the life budget of Aedes aegypti in Wat Samphaya, Bangkok, Thailand.
The development of Aedes aegypti was studied in Wat Samphaya, Bangkok, Thailand, where work on the adult biology had been carried out the previous year, with particular attention given to the variation in the numbers of immature stages of the mosquito in relation to the known seasonal incidence of dengue haemorrhagic fever.

Remotely sensed habitat diversity predicts butterfly species richness and community similarity in Canada
It is demonstrated that habitat heterogeneity, as measured by remotely sensed land cover variation, explains Canadian butterfly richness better than any energy-related variable the authors measured across spatial scales. Expand
The relationships of plant and insect diversities in succession
It was found that up to a successional age of 16 months, the taxonomic diversities of plants and insects rose; thereafter the diversity of the plant species declined far more than the insect species diversity. Expand
The number of species of insects associated with British trees: a re-analysis.
An updated list of numbers of phytophagous insects and mites associated with 28 British tree species or genera is presented, together with revised estimates of the abundance of the trees.Expand
The Guild Composition of Arthropod Communities in Trees
There was a striking uniformity in the proportion of predatory species recorded on all trees in both countries, and also a constant proportion of phytophagous species on different broad-leaved trees. Expand
The Number of Species of Insect Associated with Various Trees
The coniferous forest belt is far more extensive in Russia than in Britain and thus pine, spruce, larch and fir (the last three introduced species in Britain) will be comparatively fewer in Russia. Expand
