DescriptionI acknowledge with gratitude the invitation of Bruce L. Parker, Margaret Skinner and the organizers of this meeting to open the proceedings. It is a great pleasure to be asked to enthuse about a group of insects for which I have long had a particular affection - the Thysanoptera. My problem is that relatively few of the world's entomologists - less than 0.2% - appear to share this interest; it is therefore particularly gratifying to have an entire conference devoted to a thrips and to be able to meet with like-minded colleagues to focus on a serious economic problem.
