About this book

Language: English

Fauna of India and the Adjacent Countries: Homoptera: Aphidoidea was first published in 1980 with the plant to complete a series of seven volumes. Due to several unforeseen hurdles it took 37 years to complete the series in 7 volumes. The last one is published in 2 parts. This volume 7/2 contains descriptions of 82 genera and 291 species covering more than 800 pages with all related details about biology, host plants and distribution. This voluminous task would not have been possible without cooperation from all professional aphidologists in India and outside. It is expected that the volume will help all professional biologists and agricultural scientists to understand the crop problem due to infestation by the largest group of plant-virus vectors. The Indian aphid fauna constitutes nearly 16% of the global fauna and as such it may be of help not only to scientists in neighbouring countries, but across the globe.
