Animals

Animals can cause great damage to the vineyard by eating and contaminating the grapes, damaging parts of the vine (roots, trunk, shoots, foliage) and transmitting diseases through various microorganisms such as bacteria and viruses. Pests are various beetles and their larvae, butterflies and their caterpillars, aphids, snails, pest birds, as well as vertebrates such as gophers, hares, deer, kangaroos, rabbits, rats, deer, wild boars and voles. However, many insects also appear as beneficial insects and are sometimes used specifically as predators in the vineyard to control other insects.

The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.
