"Handbook of Agricultural Entomology" by Helmut van Emden is a
landmark publication for students and practitioners of entomology
applied to agriculture and horticulture. It can be used as a
reference and as a general textbook.
The book opens with a general introduction to entomology and
includes coverage of the major insects (and mites) that cause harm
to crops, livestock and humans. The important beneficial species
are also included. Organisms are described in a classification of
insect Orders and Families. The emphasis is on morphological
characters of major taxonomic divisions, "spot characters" for the
recognition of Families, and the life histories, damage symptoms
and economic importance of the various pest species.
The book is beautifully illustrated in full colour with more
than 400 figures showing both the organisms and the damage caused
to plants with diagnostic characters indicated by arrows. Coverage
is world-wide and includes much material stemming from the vast
personal experience of the author.A companion website with
