It features those aspects of the biology of aphids most relevant to their taxonomy and identification, followed by a crop-oriented illustrated identification guide. It also includes a comprehensive, systematic account of the genera and species of aphids inhabiting crop plants.
Comprehensively written by leading authorities in the world, it includes user-friendly identification keys with many illustrations, a summary of the techniques available for studying aphids, a list of further information sources and a photographic guide to the 150 most economically important species.
