About this book

The family of the hoverflies comprise about 5 400 species from all regions of the world with the exception of Antarctica. The larvae of 35% of the species prey on phythophagous insects, mainly aphids of agricultural importance. The information contained in this book is of great use in fundamental science or biological pest control. More than 6 500 records showing the relations among Syrphid species with their preys and host plants are included.
