    University of Georgia, Dept. of Entomology and Plant Pathology, Tifton, GA, USA
    Flue-cured tobacco fields were surveyed from 1989-91 and 1996-97 to determine the seasonal abundance and species composition of thrips in Georgia, USA. A total of 43 species (including 6 new state records) were recovered from tobacco foliage and blooms. ...
