About this book

First comprehensive taxonomic review and identification guide to the 192 African species of Bactrocera and Dacus, many of which are pests of commercially grown fruit. An interactive CD-ROM is included, which provides over 1400 photographic images (compatible with Windows 95 and higher). The CD-ROM also includes an introduction to the group and its unusual biology, featuring the life-study photographs of Dr Robert Copeland. An extensive range of photographs of both gross morphology and specialized features helps to reduce the endless uncertainty that anyone who has tried to interpret a key experiences.
