About this book

East African forests, among the world's most biologically rich and diverse, are subject to multiple pressures, including insects. As the first work to focus exclusively on East African forest insects, this monograph distils 135 years of scientific and historical literature extending from before the colonial era to the present into an authoritative survey of this region's major pests of trees and wood, as well as their antagonists. This comprehensive treatise also addresses insects of social and economic importance, such as endemics, edible and collectible insects, wild bees and silk producers. It should be of great value to foresters, entomologists, conservation biologists, resource managers, safari outfitters and anyone else interested in the natural history of this fascinating region.

Aus den Rezensionen: "! Neben einer generellen Einfuhrung in Physiographie, Boden, Klima und Waldgesellschaften Tanzanias sowie der historischen Entwicklung der Forstentomologie in Tanzania werden blattfressende und saftsaugenede Insekten, Holzbohrer, Ameisen und Termiten, Bluten-, Frucht- und Samen-Sauger und wurzelfressende Insekten vorgestellt. Das letzte Kapitel stellt die mogliche ! Nutzung ! von Insekten vor. Ein sehr penibel recherchierter Band, der uber eine in dieser Hinsicht wenig erforschte Region einen grossartigen Einstieg bietet." (R. Gerstmeier, in: Entomofauna, 2007, Vol. 28, Issue 10, S. 123)
