Agroecology is the study of linkages in agricultural systems and it derives from the need to understand and restore natural connections and ecological complexity to control insect and other pest populations. The present special issue addresses a rich variety of agroecosystems spanning the globe, involving the roles of a range of insects on a great many crops. The overview will further improve our understanding of the complex ecology of the players and the ecological complexity of the crop systems.
