The catalogue deals with 5 812 species in 225 genera in 25 tribes, illustrating the enormous r increase in knowledge of bark and ambrosia beetles since the early years of the century.

Together, these works form what must be one of the finest references available to workers on any family of beetles. 2.

Ips acuminatus Although nine countries provided quantitative data on this species, only Poland reported high losses on pines (a total of 12,838,000 m³ killed by BAWBILT organisms between 1990 and 1999: Table 8). The same 12,838,000 m³ are also cited in connection with Tomicus piniperda a and Phaenops cyanea a in Poland (Tables 9 and 10). The specific status of these three species found on the same dead pines in Poland is unclear in the database; it results from the method used for data collection in this country, namely the evidence of the volume of killed trees regardless the insect specied causing the mortality (the volume of tree killed by I.
