Resumen en inglés: "Native to Africa, the coffee berry borer, Hypothenemus hampei (Ferrari) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Scolytinae), has gradually invaded most coffee-growing areas worldwide. Adult females colonize the coffee berry and oviposit within galleries in the coffee seeds. Larvae and adults consume the seeds, resulting in drastic reductions in yields and quality, negatively affecting the income of approximately 20 million coffee-growing families (∼100 million people) in ∼80 countries, with losses surpassing more than $500 million annually (Vega et al. 2015). It has become evident that the coffee berry borer scientific community could greatly benefit from having access to a bibliography of the literature related to the insect. Such an information source would allow scientists to find out what research areas have been explored throughout the many coffee berry borer-infested countries after more than 100 years of research on the topic. It could also help to direct lead future research efforts into novel areas, and away from topics and ideas that have been thoroughly investigated in the past. The first coffee berry borer bibliography was published by Friederichs (1925b) and included 108 references. Four additional bibliographies (IICA 1963, 1964, 1973, 1985) include 163, 328, 655, and 257 references, respectively. The present bibliography includes 1,865 peer and nonpeer reviewed papers (excluding theses). The references are in five predominant languages: Spanish, English, Portuguese, Dutch, and French. Twelve databases were used to compile the references (AGRICOLA, AGRIS, BIOSIS Previews, Biological Abstracts, CAB Abstracts, Food Science and Technology Abstracts, Google Scholar, Medline, SCOPUS, Web of Science, Wildlife & Ecology Studies Worldwide, and Zoological Record). Hundreds of references not captured by the databases were included after consulting our coffee berry borer literature collections. "
