About this book

This is a digital reprint (without updates) of ISBN 9780855463144 (2007).

This volume in the Naturalists' Handbooks series deals with the identification, biology, and ecology of these herbivorous insects. Many line drawings, keys and photos of the aphids as well as their impact on the trees complement the text. While there are chapters dealing with Natural Enemies, Abundance, Sex and Distribution and Global Warming, the bulk of the book deals with identification.

The Naturalists' Handbooks provide a clear introduction to the natural history of each group, highlighting topics on which further research is needed; accurate and attractive illustrations and line drawings, and user-friendly keys for identification; practical advice on techniques and approaches to publishing one's findings; and an extensive reading list and index.
