This annual review contains 28 articles in the field of entomology that focus on ecological interactions; evolution and systematics; the management of specific pest species; physiological problems faced by insects in their life history; the influence of molecular omics on understanding silkworm biology, locust phase transitions, and phylogenetic relationships; and the role of the central brain in behavior. Topics include a memoir of Nancy E. Beckage and her work in insect host-parasite interactions; emerald ash borer invasion in North America; mosquito diapause; the response of native insect communities to invasive plants; freshwater biodiversity and aquatic insect diversification; interactions between insect herbivores and plant mating systems; the genetic control of mosquitoes; molecular mechanisms of phase change in locusts; traumatic insemination in terrestrial arthropods; the biology and management of psocids infesting stored products; the chemical ecology of bees; insect speciation rules; the neural and hormonal control of postecdysial behaviors in insects; the effects of pesticides on mobile terrestrial invertebrates; the development and functions of oenocytes; sexual selection; the systematics, phylogeny, and evolution of orb-weaving spiders; and the role of mites in insect-fungus associations. Contributors are entomologists, ecologists, biologists, zoologists, and other researchers from the US, Australia, Europe, Chile, and China.
