Insect pests and fresh horticultural products: treatment and responses edited by Robert Paull and John Amstrong, 1994 368pp UKL 49.95 ISBN 0 85198 872 5 The scale insect family coccidae: an identification manual to genera by C J Hodgson, UKL 75.00 ISB
CAB (Centre for Agriculture and Biosciences) International have produced a series of books which take a close look at insects, pests and aphids. Insect pests and fresh horticultural products: treatments and responses Post-harvest treatments are required to disinfest fruit, vegetables, nuts flowers and ornamental plants of quarantined insects prior to export. This book considers the various treatment technologies and strategies and the effect that these have on the insects and the produce. Current research, directed at prolonging post-harvest life of the commodity and maintaining its quality, is also included. This publication would be of particular interest to academics, research workers and quarantine officers. The scale insect family - Coccidae: an identification manual to genera The soft scales (Coccidae) are one of about 20 families of the scale insect 'superfamily' Coccidae. All 1100 known species are potential pests in agriculture, horticulture or forestry. This book discusses all known genera. A new classification of the soft scales is introduced, which is based on both male and female characters; keys are provided to the identification of the type species (females) of each genus. This book will be of value to any entomologist who needs to identify soft scales either for quarantine or for research involving natural enemies for biological control. Insect pests of cotton This book provides a review of the biology and pest status of insects known to infect cotton throughout the world. There are 19 chapters which systematically consider the major relevant insect groups, from Heliothis/Helicoverpa and Pectinophora, to aphids and termites. A further eight chapters then explore various aspects of pest management. Emphasis is placed on minimising the use of insecticides and promoting sustainable control methods. Aphids on the world's trees: An identification and information guide A species-by-species account of all the world's tree-dwelling aphids can be found in this book. There are detailed host lists and illustrated keys to the aphids colonising each tree genus. This is followed by a systematic treatment of the aphid species in alphabetical order of genera, with information on appearance in life, host range, distribution, life cycle and natural enemies. This book could be used both as an identification guide by entomologists and taxonomists and as a database for detailed studies.
