By William E. Conner

Бабочки семейства Arctiidae, с их яркой окраской, сложными церемониями ухаживания и причудливыми защитными приспособлениями, являются одними из удивительнейших представителей мира природы. Несъедобные за счет вторичных химических соединений, получаемых из кормовых растений, бабочки демонстрируют эту защиту своей окраской, при этом часто мимикрируют с осами, пчелами, клопами и даже тараканами.

Эта книга показывает, как гусеницы и имаго медведиц сосуществуют с хищниками, паразитами и конкурентами. Коллектив авторов, каждый из которых является признанным экспертом в своей области, свели вместе результаты исследований по филогении и поведению, естественной истории, химическим коммуникациям, выбору партнера и половому отбору, химической экологии, взаимодействиям паразит-хозяин и хищник-жертва, ориентации в пространстве, мимикрии, адаптивной окраске, биоразнообразию и многому другому.

By Robert F. Costantino

The research of populations is turning into more and more excited about dynamics. We think there are purposes for this pattern. The ftrst is the impactof nonlinear dynamics with its fascinating rules and colourful language: bifurcations, domain names of appeal, chaos, fractals, unusual attractors. Complexity, that's so a great deal part of biology, now appears additionally part of arithmetic. A moment development is the accessibility of the recent innovations. Thebarriers tocommunicationbetween theoristandexperimentalistseemless impenetrable. The energetic participationofthe experimentalist signifies that the speculation will receive substance. Our position is the applying of the idea of dynamics to the research ofbiological populations. We started our paintings early in 1979 via writing a normal differential equation for the rateofchange in grownup numbers which was once according to an equilibrium version proposed adecadeearlier.

Slowly, the various organic observations have been defined and papers on various subject matters: genetic and demographic balance, desk bound likelihood distributions for inhabitants size,population development asabirth-deathprocess, average selectionanddensity-dependent inhabitants development, genetic disequilibrium, and the desk bound stochastic dynamics of grownup numbers.
