Dordrecht: Springer, 2006. — 328 p.East African forests, among the world’s most biologically rich and diverse, are subject to multiple pressures, including insects. As the first work to focus exclusively on East African forest insects, this monograph distils 135 years of scientific and historical literature extending from before the colonial era to the present into an authoritative survey of this region’s major pests of trees and wood, as well as their antagonists. This comprehensive treatise also addresses insects of social and economic importance, such as endemics, edible and collectible insects, wild bees and silk producers. It should be of great value to foresters, entomologists, conservation biologists, resource managers, safari outfitters and anyone else interested in the natural history of this fascinating regionPreface Acknowledgments Foreword Introduction to Tanzania General Physiography and soils Climate Natural forests Man-made forests Protected forests Endemism History of Forest Entomology in Tanzania Pre-colonial period (before 1891) German colonial period (1891-1919) British colonial period (1919-1961) Post-independence (1961-1992) Post-Rio (after 1992) Defoliating Insects Introduction Defoliating Beetles (Coleoptera) Defoliating caterpillars (Lepidoptera) Defoliating grasshoppers (Saltatoria) Sap-Feeding Insects Introduction Thrips (Thysanoptera) Bugs (Hemiptera) Introduction Coleopterous borers Hymenopterous borers Lepidopterous borers Ants and Termites Introduction Ants Termites (Isoptera) Flower, Fruit and Seed Feeders Introduction Flower-, fruit- and seed-feeding beetles Fruit- and seed-feeding Hemiptera Fruit- and seed-feeding Lepidoptera Root and Root Collar Feeders Introduction Root-feeding Coleoptera Root-feeding Hemiptera Root collar-feeding Lepidoptera Root-feeding Orthoptera Forest-Based Insect Industries Introduction Edible insects (entomophagy) Bees and beekeeping (apiculture) Wild silk moths (sericulture) Collectibles References Index
