The Economic Importance of Insects
This book presents a fresh, broad look at insects and their relationships to humans and human activities. The entire field of applied entomology is covered and both insect and mite pests are presented in medical, veterinary, domestic, and agricultural contexts. The many benefits of insects to humans are also emphasized, especially their value as plant pollinators and as biocontrol agents which keep so many pest populations suppressed.
The book has been produced in conjunction with the Institute of Biology, London, UK and its coverage is international. Many of the author's personal observations are included, originating from his many years experience as an applied entomologist in South East Asia, East Africa and Britain. The book is also wonderfully illustrated with over 180 line drawings, many of which are from the author's personal collection. There are also over 100 photographs from all parts of the world.
The Economic Importance of Insects will prove an invaluable source of information for undergraduate and postgraduate students of applied entomology and acarology, pest control, agricultural science and medical and veterinary entomology.
