TLDR
The extent to which the knowledge of the biology of thrips has increased in recent years is reviewed, such as the behavior of particular species and their interactions with other organisms, including host plant associations, pollination, predation, and natural enemies--factors involved in driving diversification within this order of opportunistic insects.

An annotated check list of the world’s whiteflies (Insecta: Hemiptera: Aleyrodidae)
An updated check list of the world’s extant whitefly species is presented, comprising 1556 accepted species names in 161 genera, together with a further 210 species-group names and 40 genus-groupExpand
Thysanoptera: An Identification Guide
TLDR
This throughly updated edition incorporates all the taxonomic changes and new distribution records which have occurred since the publication of the first edition and a new set of pictorial keys which have been developed and used for training courses at the International Institute of Entomology and which aims to enhance the ability of the non-specialist to identify thrips to species.

Identification, distribution and host-plants of the pest species of Scirtothrips (Thysanoptera: Thripidae).
TLDR
Notes are given on the host range, distribution and recognition of the ten species of Scirtothrips recorded as pests: S. aurantii Faure on citrus in South Africa and bananas in Yemen; S. dorsalis Hood on groundnuts in India, tea in Japan and strawberries in Queensland. Expand
STUDIES ON THE OLFACTION AND COLOUR SENSITIVITY OF BEMISIA TABACI (GENN.) (HOMOPTERA, ALEYRODIDAE)
TLDR
It has been found that B. tabaci has no easily detectable olfactory reactions, and in its reactions to coloured surfaces, it appears to differ from the whitefly Aleyrodes brassicae, which may explain the different host range of the two species. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships between the families of recent Thysanoptera (Insecta)
TLDR
The Phlaeothripidae are either derived independently from Protothysanoptera, or else are the sister-group of the Thripidae, the most specialized family of Terebrantia. Expand
