Media reviews

"In summary, this book is a valuable source of information for both researchers and educators who are interested in pestiferous pentatomids [...] .It also should be valuable to those crop consultants who are dealing with stink bugs on a regular basis. [...] for those interested in owning an information source that captures current knowledge of stink bug pests in major crops, its price is a bargain."
- Tom A. Royer, Department of Entomology and Plant Pathology, Oklahoma State University, Stillwater, OK
