9780124171565: Bark Beetles: Biology and Ecology of Native and Invasive Species

Bark Beetles: Biology and Ecology of Native and Invasive Species provides a thorough discussion of these economically important pests of coniferous and broadleaf trees and their importance in agriculture. It  is the first book in the market solely dedicated to this important group of insects, and contains 15 chapters on natural history and ecology, morphology, taxonomy and phylogenetics, evolution and diversity, population dynamics, resistance, symbiotic associations, natural enemies, climate change, management strategies,  economics, and politics, with some chapters exclusively devoted to some of the most economically important bark beetle genera, including Dendroctonus, Ips, Tomicus, Hypothenemus, and Scolytus.

This text is ideal for entomology and forestry courses, and is aimed at scientists, faculty members, forest managers, practitioners of biological control of insect pests, mycologists interested in bark beetle-fungal associations, and students in the disciplines of entomology, ecology, and forestry.

  • Provides the only synthesis of the literature on bark beetles
  • Features chapters exclusively devoted to some of the most economically important bark beetle genera, such as Dendroctonus, Ips, Tomicus, Hypothenemus, and Scolytus
  • Includes copious color illustrations and photographs that further enhance the content

Review:

"Overall, this is a well written, comprehensive and authoritative book on bark beetle biology and ecology and is recommended reading for scholars and practitioners." --The Bulletin of the Entomological Society of Canada

"This book is a treasure trove of information on the biology of bark beetles...The 35 authors who wrote these chapters are to be congratulated on this opportunity to write their stories." --The Quarterly Review of Biology

"...numerous color photographs and illustrations are a definite plus and add a touch of aesthetics to the work...contains a wealth of information on all aspects of bark beetles and is a welcome and essential tome for foresters, entomologists, and all growers of crops affected by bark and pinhole beetles...editors are to be applauded for organizing such a comprehensive compendium. --Society for Invertebrate Pathology Newsletter, Bark Beetles

"...will be required reading for students, researchers, pest management professionals, tree care specialists, and policy makers in need of an expansive and contemporary synthesis of the bark beetle literature. Many of the chapters also contain exceptional images that are helpful in visualizing important concepts..." --American Entomologist, Bark Beetles

"This is a valuable and unique book with a lot of useful information...thanks are due to all the editors and contributors for preparing such an excellent compendium of bark and ambrosia beetle taxonomy and biology."--European Journal of Entomology,Bark Beetles
