This major work presents the first comprehensive survey on entomological studies in Iran from prehistoric periods up to modern times. This concise collection and excerpts from the literature are complemented by over 130 color figures of superb quality showing insects and their habitats.
Volume 1 Faunal Studies concentrates on the systematic taxonomy of Iranian insects. It also lists all members of Rhopalocera (butterflies) and four families of Heterocera (moths). An introductory chapter is reserved for basic information on the geography, vegetation and climate of Iran. Volume 2 Applied Entomology starts with a chapter on the history of entomology in Iran until current times. Several chapters cover agricultural aspects of entomology, such as destructive insects, biological control or cultivars exhibiting resistance to insect pests. Other chapters are on medical entomology, e.g. mosquito-, sandfly- or flea-borne diseases and human myiasis.

سلام
بسیار کتاب جالب پر محتوا و خوب است به تمام دوستداران طبیعت در ایران سفارش به خواندن این کتاب می کنم
ایکاش بروز رسانی های درون کتابداری ميگرفت
مثلا سموم را که مخصوص یکسری آفات دیگر تولید نمی
شود ولی باز هم بسیار کتاب خوبی است
دست همه کسانی که در این کتاب سهیم هستند تشکر و قدردانی می کنم
این کتاب به صورت فارسی هم موجد است ؟
