About this book

Stephen L. Wood (1924-2009) was the leading authority of bark and pinhole borer beetle systematics (Scolytinae and Platypodinae) in the latter half of the 20th century. He published over 100 taxonomic papers including monographs and a worldwide catalog. His research advanced the understanding of Scolytinae and Platypodinae diversity and influenced several generations of bark beetle systematists. This Festschrift honors Dr. Wood's 60 years of Scolytinae and Platypodinae systematic research.

The 20 contributing authors represent worldwide taxonomic expertise that report on a range of topics from biology to phylogeny. These studies concern species from all major faunal regions. Twenty-three new taxa are described and five patronymics are named. Most taxonomic treatments include identification keys. A brief biography accompanied by a list of Dr. Wood's publications is included.
