Information Series (Queensland Dept. of Primary Industries) (Q19906). Queensland Department of Primary Industries, 75 pages. ISBN 0 7345 0057 2



This book provides for the first time a detailed host list for all the fruit fly species (Tephritidae) known from Australia. It includes available distribution, male lure and host plant information for the 278 species currently recorded from Australia (including Torres Strait Islands but excluding Christmas and Cocos (Keeling) islands in the Indian Ocean). This total includes 269 described species plus nine undescribed species of Tephritinae. Thirteen fruit fly specialists from throughout Australia collaborated with QDPI in the production of this book. It provides an invaluable reference source for anyone involved in fruit fly research, ecological studies, pre- and post-harvest control, regulation, quarantine and market access.
