For the first time, a synthesis on the research work done in Europe on all Bark And Wood Boring Insects In Living Trees (BAWBILT) is presented. As final product of a four-year research project gathering together 100 scientists from 24 countries, the book is the fruit of a real collective synthesis in which all European specialists have participated. It reviews and comments on all the European literature, while considering the biological (trees, insects, associated organisms, and their relationships) and forest management aspects. However, although focused on the European forest, it also compares the available information and interpretations to those concerning similar species in other continents. It ends with propositions of research priorities for Europe. The book is directed to all scientists and students concerned with forest entomology and ecology, as well as to forest managers and all scientific public interested in forest biology.

From the reviews:

"This book is the result of a European collaborative project on Bark and Wood Boring Insects in Living Trees (BAWBILT) ... . The book offers a comprehensive treatment of especially the bark beetles and the bark weevils. ... I can highly recommend the book to forest pathologists. It gives a very good overview of forest protection problems caused by bark- and wood-boring insects ... . If you are looking for a standard reference book on forest entomology this is an excellent buy." (J. Stenlid, Forest Pathology, Vol. 35 (6), 2005)

"A European joint effort involving more than 100 scientists ... . The objective of the book was to present a synthesis of the research that has been done on `Bark and wood boring insects in living trees' (BAWBILT) in Europe. ... The result is an impressive amount of information contained in a single volume that will be of considerable value to researchers ... . the book is well-researched, well-organized, and well-written. ... will be a great addition to the library ... ."
