Much community theory has ignored insects on plants, although they comprise a large proportion of extant organisms. In this text the authors review the evolution and recent history of phytophagous insects and consider the structure of phytophage communities, with the aim of bringing the study of such communities into the mainstream of ecological thought. They combine the synthetic, pattern-searching approach to community ecology with reductionist methods which isolate single mechanisms for study in a stimulating text will interest senior undergraduates and research workers in the fields of entomology, ecology, agriculture and botany.

Who We Might Have Been, and Who We Will Become

Who among us hasn’t considered what our lives would be like if we had taken alternate paths, made different decisions? Storytellers of every stripe write of the lives we didn’t have, says Andrew H. Miller, author of On Not Being Someone Else: Tales of Our Unled Lives. As we live through a worldwide pandemic, the ideas of what might have been are even more appealing. Much like the adolescents on the verge of adulthood in Sally Rooney’s novel Normal People, Miller tells us, we wait to see what comes next.
