Thrips have recently surged to prominence as insect pests of field, plantation and glasshouse crops in many countries, as international trade in fresh vegetables, fruit, flowers and plant propagation material has increased. By damaging aerial parts of the plant, thrip infestation can lead to yield loss and spoilage. Also, thrips are important vectors for certain plant viruses. Being quite small, they are particularly difficult to control. CAB International has published Thrips as Crop Pests, a book that brings together knowledge on thrip basic biology, ecology, applied science and pest control. Chapters are written by world authorities from Europe, the USA, and Asia. ISBN 0 85199 178 5, 736 pp. US $175. CAB International Wallingford, Oxon OX10 8DE UK.
