About this book

Language: Italian

The only existing book that covers the sawfly fauna of Italy that has identification keys and accurate treatment of all species dates back to the end of the nineteenth century.

This volume of the Fauna d'Italia dedicated to the suborder Symphyta updates the reader on a subject that is interesting not only for the specialist but also has an applied side. Sawflies are a group of great importance from agricultural and forestry points of view and as a biological indicator of environmental quality. With this in mind, the discussion of their biology and ecology here and in future volumes draws mainly and preferably on the most recent contributions and those works that still prove to be irreplaceable.

The treatment of the individual species is particularly rich in information relating to their biology and ecology, and for each, a detailed and updated picture of the distribution data (published and original) is provided, which, for a group that is as poorly known as the sawflies, should constitute a very useful basis for future insights. This first volume deals with the families Xyelidae, Pamphiliidae, Megalodontesidae, Blasticotomidae, Argidae, Heptamelidae, and Tenthredinidae.

Summary in Italian:
L’unico testo esistente avente il carattere di “Fauna”, con chiavi di identificazione e trattazione accurata di tutte le specie di Sinfiti presenti in Italia  risale addirittura alla fine dell’Ottocento.

Questo volume della Fauna d’Italia dedicato ai Sinfiti vuole rispondere all'esigenza di riallineare il nostro Paese ad uno standard adeguato ai tempi rispetto ad una materia che è interessante non solo per lo specialista ma anche su un versante applicativo, essendo i Sinfiti un gruppo di grande importanza sotto l’aspetto agrario e forestale e in gran parte anche come indicatore biologico della qualità dell’ambiente. In quest’ottica, la trattazione della biologia e dell’ecologia ha considerato, e considererà nei volumi successivi, in prevalenza e preferibilmente, i contributi più recenti e le opere che di fatto si dimostrano tuttora insostituibili.

La trattazione delle singole specie è particolarmente ricca di informazioni relative alla loro biologia ed ecologia, per ognuna inoltre si fornisce un quadro dettagliato e aggiornato dei dati corologici (pubblicati e originali), che per un gruppo insufficientemente conosciuto sotto questo profilo come quello trattato dovrebbe costituire una base molto utile per futuri approfondimenti. Il volume affronta le seguenti famiglie: Xyelidae, Pamphiliidae, Megalodontesidae, Blasticotomidae, Argidae, Heptamelidae, Tenthredinidae.
