Tropical Forest Insect Pests: Ecology, Impact, and Management
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2007; 0521873320 / 9780521873321; First Edition; Hardcover; Brand New; Brand New; 
Tropical Forest Insect Pests promotes a better theoretical understanding of pest population dynamics, and causes of forest insect outbreaks in the tropics. Covering pests of both natural forests and plantations, it examines the diversity of tropical forest insects; their ecological functions; the concept of pests; and the incidence of pests in natural forests, plantations, and stored timber. General issues on which foresters and forest entomologists hold strong traditional views, such as the severity of pest incidence in plantations vs. natural forests, in plantations of exotics vs. indigenous tree species, and in monocultures vs. mixed plantations are discussed. The final section looks in detail at specific insect pests of the common plantation tree species across the tropics, with recommendations for their control. This is a comprehensive resource suitable for graduate students and researchers in forestry and tropical forest entomology, and for forest plantation managers in the tropics. • Provides detailed pest profiles of all major plantation pests thus identifying profitable research areas • Facilitates appreciation of the ecological role of insects and the rationale behind modern pest management • Presents a holistic picture of the ecological framework to aid understanding Contents Foreword; Preface; 1.
