Besides giving full synonymies, descriptions, illustrations, collection records, habitats, distributions, etc., keys to orders, families, genera and species are also provided. A detailed taxonomic review, complete list of all the plant inhabiting predatory mites (319 spp., 71 genera, 19 families) so far known from India and biological notes, wherever possible, are also given.

It will also include a chapter on bio-ecology and predatory behaviour of the potentially important predatory species and a state-wise list of predatory mites known so far from India.
