About this book. Language: English. This book presents an updated identification key to the hopper fauna of Britain and Ireland, comprising altogether species, based on new checklists for the two countries. It is closely linked to the basic work Planthoppers and Leafhoppers of Germany. Auchenorrhyncha, the planthoppers and leafhoppers, occur in high densities and species richness in almost all terrestrial ecosystems, forming an important component of food webs. They may transmit plant pathogens such as viruses and mycoplasmas, and a few species are among the worlds' worst pests of cereals and other crops. Coverage is worldwide, but with emphasis on species found in Asia. Sections are: 1) Introduction to rice and its insect pest complex, diseases spread by leafhoppers and planthoppers, taxonomic.

Communities of planthoppers and leafhoppers (Hemiptera: Fulgoromorpha et Cicadomorpha) inhabiting selected plant communities in . The leafhoppers, planthoppers and their allies (collectively known as the Auchenorrhyncha) are presented as a group of insects that are highly appropriate for studying grassland ecology and conservation, evaluating the conservation status of sites and monitoring environmental and habitat change. Semi-natural grasslands typically support dense populations and a wide range of species with. All leafhoppers, treehoppers and planthoppers are sapsuckers which feed on the leaves, twigs, branches and/or trunk of the host tree. Leafhoppers, Treehoppers and Planthoppers have the move aerodynamic-shaped body in the insect world. This is shaped by .
Planthoppers include some of the most devastating pests of major agricultural crops throughout the world. One species, the rice brown planthopper, is among Our Stores Are Open Book Annex Membership Educators Gift Cards Stores & Events HelpPrice: $ One species, the rice brown planthopper, is among the most economically important pests in Asia. In past decades, government policies encouraged the control of rice planthoppers with synthetic pesticides, a tactic which promoted insecticide resistance and often led to the pesticide-induced resurgence of pest populations. The broad aim of this handbook is to give a comprehensive account of the leafhoppers and planthoppers (Auchenorrhyncha) found on rice, the most important cereal crop in tropical countries, for use by both specialists and field workers; this will enable the commoner species in rice fields to be identified, which is vital for the development of pest management strategies.
