Die tierischen Schädlinge des Ackerbaues

Article metrics


THIS well-produced book, dealing with the anima l pests of agricultural crops, forms a thoroughly reliable and up-to-date manual on the subject. It is a German translation of the fourth Danish edition of the same authors' “Vort Landbrugs Skadedyr” (1928), with certain additions and amplifications in order to adapt it to German needs. The number of illustrations has also been increased. Although specially written for continental readers, this book will be found to include very few pests that are not concerned with some form of crop injury in Britain. It is, therefore, a volume which can be consulted with profit by workers and students in Great Britain. The bulk of the letterpress is, naturally, devoted to destructive insects, and other arthropods, but there are also chapters dealing with Nematoda, Chæto-poda, and Mollusca.
