About this book

Chrysomelidae are some of the most important phytophagous Coleoptera, both from an economic aspect as many are agricultural pests and also because of their great biological diversity. This book is the first attempt to compile information on various aspects of their biology. It includes topics on host relationships, biogeography, reproduction, ecology, ethology, natural enemies, defense mechanisms, cytogenetics and evolution of the group.

'The printing and the get up of the book are excellent and the book will be of great interest to biologists and entomologists in general, particularly to taxonomists, ecologists, economic entomologists and pest management specialists.' V. Gupta, Oriental Insects, Vol. 24, 1990
