Abstract:The study of insect responses to global climate change is an important branch in the field of global change biology which is concerned with the characteristics, mechanism and rules involved in insect responses to climate change. Insect responses to global climate change have gradually become a hot topic in Entomology and Ecology since the 1980s. In recent years, a series of important findings have been made by Chinese scholars in this field, which has also been a focus of research for the international community. This review mainly focuses on the 5 most widely studied, key factors involved in global climate change. We provide an overview of the progress in research on insect responses to global warming, elevated CO2 and O3, moisture, and atmospheric nitrogen deposition. By highlighting specific case studies and summarizing overall progress in the field, we compare research methods, systems and ideas in China with those in other countries. Finally, we suggest directions for future research in this field based on the current situation.
