About this title

Synopsis:

East African forests, among the world's most biologically rich and diverse, are subject to multiple pressures, including insects. As the first work to focus exclusively on East African forest insects, this monograph distils 135 years of scientific and historical literature extending from before the colonial era to the present into an authoritative survey of this region's major pests of trees and wood, as well as their antagonists.

Review:

From the reviews:

"The author of this book ... spent three years trying to bring together the scattered information, and compiling it into a general reference book. The result is an amply illustrated and easy to read monograph providing a wealth of information on forest insects. ... The book ends with an extensive list of references, and a detailed index of the insects included. ... In addition, the book contains an extensive colour section ... . In a nutshell, the book is an excellent work ... ." (Marc De Meyer, Journal of East African Natural History, Vol. 95 (2), 2006)

"This ambitious book is a notable addition to the entomological documentation of East Africa. ... the book is pioneering in providing the first major synopsis of the forest insects of any part of East Africa. ... The text is preceded by a series of 80 color plates ... . Schabel provides a valuable summary of attempts to promote entomophagy over recent decades. ... a well-produced hardback book is an important contribution to promoting interest in insect conservation in the region." (T. R. New, Journal of Insect Conservation, Issue 12, 2008)
