About this book

This volume on scolytid beetles (Scolytidae: Coleoptera), commonly known as bark and ambrosia beetles, gives taxonomic accounts of species occurring in India. In spite of their beneficial roles to forestry and forest products, these insects are also well-known pests, especially in temperate forests.

The family Scolytidae contains about 270 species in India, of which only the tribe Xyleborini, containing 97 species under 15 genera, is dealt with in this first part. The rest of the Indian species are dealt with in the second part. For each species, this book provides the current name, synonymy, description, keys, distribution, host records, remarks, etc. Next to an introductory section, it contains information on history, classification, zoogeography, biology, ecology, control, etc.
