Reseña del editor:

This major work presents the first comprehensive survey on entomological studies in Iran from prehistoric periods up to modern times. This concise collection and excerpts from the literature are complemented by over 130 color figures of superb quality showing insects and their habitats.Volume 1 Faunal Studies concentrates on the systematic taxonomy of Iranian insects. It also lists all members of Rhopalocera (butterflies) and four families of Heterocera (moths). An introductory chapter is reserved for basic information on the geography, vegetation and climate of Iran. Volume 2 Applied Entomology starts with a chapter on the history of entomology in Iran until current times. Several chapters cover agricultural aspects of entomology, such as destructive insects, biological control or cultivars exhibiting resistance to insect pests. Other chapters are on medical entomology, e.g. mosquito-, sandfly- or flea-borne diseases and human myiasis.

Klappentext:

This major work presents the first comprehensive survey on entomological studies in Iran from prehistoric periods up to modern times. Even though significant contributions were made during this period they were never compiled in such an extensive form. This concise collection and excerpts from the literature are supported by over 130 color figures of superb quality showing insects and their habitats. The author has succeeded in collecting, summarizing and presenting the results of all relevant literature on the insects of Iran from all over the world and written in several languages.
Volume 1 Faunal Studies concentrates on the systematic taxonomy of Iranian insects. It also lists all members of Rhopalocera (butterflies) and four families of Heterocera (moths) namely Zygaenidae, Geometridae, Crambidae and Pyralidae. An introductory chapter is reserved for basic information on the geography, vegetation and climate of Iran. This information may help those who intend to undertake faunal studies in Iran or those who plan to import predators and parasitoids from this country for possible implementation in biological control of weeds or insects in their own countries.
Volume 2 Applied Entomology starts with a chapter on the history of entomology in Iran and its development until current times. Several chapters cover agricultural aspects of entomology, such as destructive insects, biological control or cultivars exhibiting resistance to insect pests. Other chapters are on medical entomology, e.g. mosquito-, sandfly- or flea-borne diseases and human myiasis.
