Thrips

Introductory chapters cover the main habitats: fungi, leaves, galls and flowers. The identication section comprises 25 pages of dichotomous keys illustrated with line drawings. These assume you have a cleared and mounted microscope slide of the specimen (well you weren't going to try to pin it were you?)
