Reviews

@qu:This book will appeal to all serious students of armoured scale insects, whether their specialities are taxonomy, ecology or control. The editor notes in his Preface that he aims to present an up to date, overall coverage of all aspects of armoured scale research. In my view, he and his contributors have succeeded admirably. I recommend this book highly, and look forward to forthcoming volumes in the series. @source:Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa
