This makes it difficult to cover the whole topic in any meaningful way within the confines a single chapter. About this book. Insects display a staggering diversity of behaviors. Studying these systems provides insights into a wide range of ecological, evolutionary, and behavioral questions including the genetics of behavior, phenotypic plasticity, chemical communication, and the evolution of life-history Range: £ - £   For the simple insect nervous system, learning to ignore repetitive and meaningless stimuli is a fairly easy task.

Exploring the World of Insects: The Equinox Guide to Insect Behavior by Adrian Forsyth and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at Insect behavior consists of active responses to various stimuli in the environment.

Unlike much of human behavior, insects do not think or reason, but only act. Thus, it is incorrect to assign.
