This comprehensive handbook on economic entomology for Australian field crops and pastures is the first of its kind. It encompasses pest and beneficial insects as well as allied forms of importance in Australian agriculture. Organised by commodities, such as cereals, sugar and tropical pasture legumes, it examines all the pest species for a particular commodity. Identification, distribution, damage, host range, biology, risk period and monitoring techniques are described for each entry, accompanied by useful illustrations.
