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.
Anthony Ant adores apples. Grace Grasshopper gets good grades. And Yoko Yellow Jacket yanks on her yo-yo. Twenty-six whimsical illustrations -- each accompanied by a humorous caption -- make it fun for youngsters to match letters of the alphabet with insects' names beginning with those letters.
