About this book

Tent caterpillars are among the most familiar of insects, capable of defoliating tens of thousands of forested acres in a single spring. They differ most markedly from other destructive caterpillars, such as the gypsy moth, in that they are a social species. This book, which synthesizes some 150 years of research, is the only book to cover their biology and behavioural ecology.
