The main purpose of this book is to complement the hitherto largely descriptive works on the order Thysanoptera, by presenting thrips as living animals, stressing the behavior of individuals and populations, their varied and complex relationships with plants, other animals and the physical components of their abundance in undisturbed and in cultivated habitats, and in cultivated economic importance as pests and beneficial insects. A considerable literature on thrips has accumulated over the last one hundred years. Unfortunately much of this information is fragmentary, scattered through obscure pamphlets, journals and accessible only with difficulty. Following a brief introduction to the structure and classification of adult thrips, the text is divided into four sections. The first describes the biology and behavior of individuals, the second, the techniques needed to study field populations, a hitherto sparsely documented topic. Section III deals in detail with thrips ecology, especially survival in unfavorable weather, migration and dispersal, population dynamics and community structure, and finally Section IV gives a survey of the economic importance of the group.
