Due to their vast adaptive radiation, insects have demonstrated ecological principles better than any other animal group. In fact, their biotic and abiotic interactions, ranging from simple through to complex and sophisticated, have provided models on which many ecological principles are based. All this has also been the reason why numerous textbooks specifically dedicated to insect ecology (e.g. Price 1997; Speight et al. 1999; Schowalter 2000) have been produced over the years, thereby elevating insect ecology as a distinct science.
