About this book

The major part of this catalog consists of host lists of particular aphid species in the Palaearctic region based on published and unpublished data of more than 2,400 authors with respective references arranged by geographical provenience. Separate lists are included of aphids living on particular plants arranged in alphabetical order of plant genera and families, mosses, ferns, gymnosperms, dicotyledons and monocotyledons. In total 3,706 aphid species and subspecies (about 80 per cent of the aphid fauna of the world) are covered, feeding on 11,131 species of host plants in 1,948 genera and 243 families.

As a result, this book presents clearly organized data with up-to-date information on geographic distribution of particular aphid species and their host relationships within the Palaearctic region. It will be useful to institutions and researchers engaged or interested in biosystematics, ecology, genetics and phylogeny of aphids, as well as in biodiversity and plant protection.
