About this book

The forests of West Africa are complex, beautiful and under continued threat of over exploitation. Forest Entomology in West Tropical Africa: Forest Insects of Ghana, in its second edition, remains the only comprehensive source of information on economically important forest insects in West Africa. Many pest insects discussed in this book have the potential to greatly alter the utilization of these valuable tropical forests. Several key pests such as mahogany shoot borer, odur gall fly and pest of endangered tree species like Pericopsis, are extensively discussed. This comprehensive treatise of insects includes information on the general forest cover types and insects of utilitarian value. Forest Entomology in West Tropical Africa: Forest Insects of Ghana will be a great value to foresters, forest entomologists, researchers, conservation biologists and other with a basic biological interest in West Africa forests.
