By George O. Poinar Jr., Gerard M. Thomas (auth.)

This guide was once ready for the prognosis of insect illnesses brought on by infectious brokers. The brokers (or pathogens) incorporated listed below are fungi, protozoans, micro organism, viruses, and rickettsias. the current paintings used to be ready after a lot deliberation and dialogue with scholars and academics who felt a advisor of this kind will be worthwhile for diagnosing the microbial ailments of bugs. It used to be modeled after a seminar given at the comparable topic at Berke­ ley, which had as its significant objective the popularity and id of insect pathogens for useful reasons. the current paintings in­ cludes various timesaving "short cuts" that have been constructed after years of expertise of diagnosing insect ailments. even if emphasis is put on id, basic again­ floor details at the a variety of pathogens is usually incorporated. therefore, lower than all of the 5 teams of pathogens, the next issues are mentioned: (1) quite a few varieties of institutions with bugs, (2) defini­ tion and class, (3) normal lifestyles cycle, (4) features of diseased bugs, (5) components affecting traditional infections, (6) tools of exam, (7) isolation and cultivation, (8) vital taxonomic characters, (9) exams for infectivity, (10) garage, (11) an illustrated key to the genera (or staff in relation to viruses), and (12) literature, specially that bearing on id. even if frequently incorporated with insect pathogens, entomogenous nematodes will not be lined the following due to the fact illustrated keys to these gen­ period that infect bugs are already on hand (Poinar, 1975, 1977).
