There are more than 36,000 species of Cerambycidae (Coleoptera) recognized worldwide (see Chapter1), and they are found on all continents except Antarctica (Linsley 1959, 1961). Nearly all cerambycids are phytophagous, feeding primarily on woody plants, although some species do feed on herbaceous plants (see Chapter 3). Cerambycids develop in nearly all parts of woody plants, especially in roots, trunks, and branches, but occasionally also in seeds, pods, cones, and leaves. Inaddition, cerambycid larvae develop in nearly all major tissues in woody plants, including outer bark, inner bark, cambium, sapwood, heartwood, and pith (see Chapter 3).
