Agricultural and Forest Entomology provides a multi-disciplinary and international forum in which researchers can present their work on all aspects of agricultural and forest entomology to other researchers, policy makers and professionals.
The Journal welcomes primary research papers, reviews and short communications on entomological research relevant to the control of insect and other arthropod pests. We invite high quality original research papers on the biology, population dynamics, impact and management of pests of the full range of forest, agricultural and horticultural crops. All cropping systems within these sectors are of interest, including forest plantations, semi-natural forest stands, seed orchards, fruit orchards, agroforestry systems, grassland, arable and horticultural field and protected crops.
All papers, including those on insect biology and population dynamics, must be novel and be of applied importance. Papers on population dynamics should focus on the factors which lead to outbreaks of pests or to forecasting these outbreaks. Papers on the management of pests may include the development and use of techniques, such as plant resistance, pheromones, biological control, the economics of pest control and the use of silvicultural and crop management techniques to manage pests. Papers on biology underpinning the development of techniques and strategies of pest management will also be accepted.
