Aphids on the world's crops: an identification and information guide.

Abstract

The aims of this book are to enable agricultural entomologists who are not aphid taxonomists to identify most aphid (Aphidoidea) species that are likely to be found on commercial crops worldwide. Information is provided on the geographical distribution, host-plant range and life cycle of the principal pest species. The chapters include lists and keys to aphids on each crop, systematics, host-plant relationships, morphology, techniques for collecting, preservation and mounting, and labelling and storage, and sources of information for aphid-related topics.
