Leafminers of North America
By Charley Eiseman

This thoroughly illustrated book compiles information from about 1000 literature sources, plus BugGuide submissions and my own observations, to present keys to the leaf mines found on each plant genus in North America. Species accounts (biology, hosts, and distribution) are given for each insect species, and the first 383 pages are devoted to introducing leafminers (biology, terminology, rearing) and providing overviews of each group of leaf-mining insects as well as their parasitoids and predators (including photos of adults).

Review excerpt:
"In essence, the book is now a series of illustrated keys for identification. each key being preceded by supplementary information essential to its use. These keys, with a few exceptions. are easily followed by the nonspecialist and in most instances may lead the student to a generic identification, although frequently specific determinations can be made."

Rangeland Insect-Plant Associations on the Pawnee Site
By Lavigne, R.J.
Annals of the Entomological Society of America 69(4), 753-763, 1976
This little article is a treasure for naturalists in grassland habitats of western North America, with a listing of observed plant-insect associations from a grassland site in Colorado. The listing is organized by plant species and separated into observations of insect species pollen and nectar feeding, consuming flowers, consuming leaves, etc. A good reference for anyone interested in relationships between insects and plant communities in the west, as a sort of baseline set of hypotheses regarding insects to look for associated with a given common plant species.
