About this book

Language: Dutch

Plantengallen provides information on the history, biology and ecology of plant galls and their host plants. It extensively illustrates over 400 species of galls, caused by nematodes, bacteria, aphids, psyllids, sawflies, chalcid wasps, gall midges, gall wasps, beetles, flies, butterflies, mites, plants, and fungi. Each of these groups is introduced with general information, followed by more detailed information of the all species belonging to these groups.

Photos show characteristic details, but also variations in form, sections, and sometimes the culprit causing the gall. The book concludes with an extensive reference list, a glossart, and lists of synonyms, Dutch species names, and host plants with the species found on them. Plantengallen is a reference work aimed at amongst other entomologists, phytopathologists, horticulturists, and arborists.

Summary in Dutch:
Plantengallen geeft informatie over de geschiedenis, biologie en ecologie van gallen en over de planten waarop ze voorkomen. Het bevat uitgebreide fotodocumentatie over 400 soorten gallen, veroorzaakt door aaltjes, bacteriën, bladluizen, bladvlooien, bladwespen, bronswespen, galmuggen, galwespen, kevers, vliegen, vlinders, (gal)mijten, planten en schimmels. Elk van deze groepen wordt ingeleid met algemene informatie, gevolgd door een bespreking van hiertoe behorende soorten waarbij veel achtergrond informatie wordt gegeven.

Op de foto's zijn kenmerkende details te zien, maar ook vormvariaties, doorsneden, en soms de veroorzakers van de gal. Het boek wordt afgesloten met een uitgebreide literatuurlijst, een verklarende woordenlijst, en registers voor synoniemen, Nederlandse namen en waardplanten met de daarop voorkomende soorten. Plantengallen is een rijk naslagwerk voor o.a. entomologen, fythopathologen, hoveniers, (boom-) kwekers en liefhebbers.
