    Description

    Most participants of this symposium will be concerned with understanding thrips ecology primarily in order to develop practical and effective control strategies. Questions dealing with historical aspects (evolution) may seem of only isolated "theoretical" interest with little significance for everyday pragmatic concerns. Evolutionary theory is widely presented, however, as a cornerstone of modern biology and this position implies that evolutionary considerations can and do provide a direct input into our understanding of both ecosystems and individual organisms. Most evolutionary perspectives on living organisms are derived from specialist studies such as ecological, genetic or developmental systems. Data from these studies are extrapolated to represent evolutionary processes in reference to some general theoretical or metaphorical framework (e.g., natural selection) that also has its source in the same kind of observations.
