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 the tribe Xyleborini, containing 97 species under 15 genera, was dealt with in the first part. This second part describes 124 species under 43 genera and 16 tribes. 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.
