Published as volume 5 of the World Crop Pests series, this publication deals with the economic importance of Tortricidae in agriculture and forestry. It discusses how crops and forests in the temperate climatic zones suffer considerable loss due to this lepidopterous family, covering the entire spectrum from taxonomy, morphology and physiology to chemical and biological control. It provides an opening to the scientific literature on Tortricidae for scientists in research institutions, universities and experimental stations. The indices include entries fur synonyms referring to the species names used in this volume. The contents are as follows:
