Rapid evolution in insect pest species

Off the back of a review Ary wrote last year in Current Opinion in Insect Science, a less technical and more digestible summary is now available (sans pay-wall) at Science Trends.

A Quote from the Science Trends article to grab your interest:

Evolutionary changes often occur when pest species invade new areas where they have not been found before … Pests are likely to be able to evolve quickly (to new climatic conditions) because they have short generation times and because they occur at a large population size…
