COVER: An aptemus vivipara of Myzus persicae (Sulzer) feeding on the leaf of Chinese pe-tsai, Brassica pekinensis (Loureiro) Ruprecht, 70× magnification.

Scanning electron microscopy. Live green peach aphid feeding on Chinese pe-tsai leaf was transferred to an aluminum tape-rimmed SEM stub. The loaded stub and its holder were placed in the specimen chamber, viewed and pictured with a Hitachi S-500 SEM at an accelerating voltage of 15 kV under vacuum.

Remark. Cho-kai Chan took this picture in 1979, and won the competition of insect photo contest during an ESBC annual general meeting in the early 1980's. The judge was SFU's renowned photographer, Mr. Ron Long. This picture was then used as a logo on the pamphlet for the Agriculture Canada Vancouver Research Station.
