About this book

A number of species of Thysanoptera (thrips) are increasingly important crop pests in many parts of the world, as well as in some cases being vectors of plant disease. This thoroughly updated edition incorporates all the taxonomic changes and new distribution records which have occurred since the publication of the first edition and, most significantly, a new set of pictorial keys, which will greatly enhance the ability of the non-specialist to identify thrips to species.


"This book enables applied entomologists and growers with little knowledge of thrips, but with access to a good compound microscope, to collect, prepare and easily identify to suborder, family, subfamily and genus adults of the common and pest thrips of the world. The authors' reasons for publishing a second edition only nine years after the first were to update its information and to facilitate its use by persons uncomfortable with English or with the use of dichotomous keys. It provides an accurate, concise and detailed introduction to the study of Thysanoptera and will be of great use to growers, applied entomologists and other biologists wishing to jumpstart their understanding of these fine little creatures and to identify pest species they encounter." -- Bruce Heming, Entomological Society of Canada Bulletin, Vol 32, No 3, Sept 2000
