This booklet is split into 8 elements, entitled palaeontology, larvae and larval biology, trophic choice, genetics and evolution defence mechanisms, anatomy and replica, pathogens and usual enemies, and normal experiences in biology. The biologies of agricultural and forestry pests, Leptinotarsa, Plagiodera, Entomoscelis, Paropsis, Mecistomela and Aspidomorpha are handled intimately.
