"[S]hould be on the bookshelf of every entomologist with an interest in insects found on palms and every agriculturist or horticulturist concerned with growing palms." (Journal of Applied Entomology)
"This book certainly could be useful to landscape workers as an excellent reference and as a valuable textbook for advanced courses in insect-plant interactions. The basic information on feeding and morphology can readily be transposed for most plants. It is a book extension entomologists should have in areas of the world in which palms are continually brought in, and problems arise and need diagnoses and recommendations. Insects on Palms certainly covered all maladies I have had to deal with in palms and opened my eyes to many others that could arise." (Annals of the Entomological Society of America)
"This truly excellent volume is a remarkable synthesis of the massive body of published data on insects associated with palms. The authors are needlessly self-deprecating in the preface about their achievement, as the contents of the book will undoubtedly stand the test of time and be the standard reference text for years to come." (Edinburgh Journal of Botany)
"The book is readable, and well presented. It will be a useful reference to have on hand for the targeted audience of entomologists and other involved in the technical aspects of growing palms" (Crop Protection Journal)
"The authors are congratulated on a worthy addition to the bookshelves of people interested in palms and their pests." (Southern African Society for Horticultural Sciences)
"I can think of no higher praise for this book than to say it will doubtlessly inspire an entire generation of entomologists working with palms. The impact of this book will reverberate through universities, agricultural research stations and museums for many years to come." (Palms)
