Damage from heavy lerp infestations on eucalypts is a familiar sight to most urban Australians, but few are aware of the insects causing this damage or their life cycles. Did you know, too, that the exquisitely shaped, tiny sugary lerps covering some of the insects were collected by aborigines for food? Today, however, psylloid insects are of special interest as pests and potential biocontrol agents in agriculture, horticulture and forestry. Thus, they are of concern to quarantine and biosecurity in Australia and elsewhere, as well as to natural resource managers. Australian Psylloidea Jumping Plantlice and Lerp Insects discusses psylloid biology and gives a key to genera, comprehensive information on host plants and natural enemies, looks at economic significance, and gives a full listing of Australian species and their broad distributions. It sets the scene for further much-needed research on the group and, containing beautiful illustrations, is a valuable handbook for professionals, amateurs and students. Please note that this book is spiral-bound.
