Armoured scale insects are important agricultural, horticultural and forestry pests that are difficult to indentify. This CD-ROM holds an interactive identification guide and information source on economically important diaspidids of the world. It aims to enable agricultural entomologists working in agriculture, horticulture and forestry and plant quarantine inspectors to indentify the most important species for themselves. The CD-ROM contains a pictorial key to adult females of 100 species in 48 genera, detailed information on their taxonomy, and information on their host-plants, biology and ecology, economic impact, natural enemies, distribution and common names. Diagnostic characters, distribution and host-plant information are provided on a further 85 similar species. This work was composed using the most recent literature from the best experts in the field and illustrations provided by numerous scientists, institutes and publishers around the world.
