Beetles in the family Cerambycidae are commonly called “longhorned beetles” because their antennae are typically as long as or longer than their body length. More than 36,000 species of cerambycids have been discovered throughout the world and several are major pests of agricultural crops as well as urban and forest trees. Several species have been moved to new countries as a result of international trade in recent decades, where often they have become pests. In the U.S., infestations of the Asian longhorned beetle, a major pest of maples and many other hardwood trees, are active in Massachusetts, New York, and Ohio. There is growing global interest to better understand and manage cerambycids. In response, a team of international researchers published the book “Cerambycidae of the World: Biology and Pest Management” in 2017. Five of the book’s 13 chapters were written by scientists with the USDA Forest Service’s Northern Research Station, covering the topics of cerambycid general biology, feeding ecology, laboratory rearing, urban and forest tree pests, and biosecurity. Each chapter reviewed the world’s scientific literature and will serve as an essential reference for researchers and quarantine professionals for years to come.
