Abstract

This note reviews the biological aspects of the book “South Asian Ways of Silk - A Patchwork of Biology, Manufacture, Culture and History”, covering the different species of silk moths and their management. The review centers on the Mulberry Silk Moth but also other silk moths (the Eri Silk Moth and wild silk moths) are covered in detail. Considerable research has taken place in most South Asian countries, which now has to be carried out to the rearers of silk moths, who are the backbone of sericulture. Obstacles to this are mentioned.
