This comprehensive handbook, acclaimed when it was first published in 1976 as "one of the most useful reference manuals on diagnostic entomology yet produced," has now been completely revised and expanded to reflect recent advances in technology and the wealth of new information affecting the "Green Industry."Augmented by 241 full-color plates, it gives the essential facts about more than 900 species of insects, mites, and other animals that injure woody ornamental plants in the United States and Canada, and provides means of quick visual identification of both the pests and the damage they cause.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"If you are a professional or amateur horticulturalist working with ornamental trees and shrubs, you will want this book. It is the most useful tool we have ever seen for identifying insects that affect woody plants. . . . For those times when you can't quite place the insect into a group there's a carefully done index according to host plant."—Horticulture Review
