Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book is designed to help the reader anticipate and recognize specific problems of pest management and then to resolve them using the natural enemies of pests — insects, mites, and diseases. The main sections on pest profiles, beneficial species, and entomopathogens provide a pest identification guide as well as information on species characteristics, life cycles, damage symptoms, plant and pest associations, and influences on growing practices. The book will be a valuable reference for professional, academic, and lay readers, whether they are growers, consultants, scientists, or students.

Book News Annotation:

To rectify perceived inadequate coverage of eco-friendly pest control, UK horticulturalists profile many pest and biological control organisms representative of areas worldwide. Profiles suitable for both home gardeners and commercial growers include information on species characteristics, life cycle, plant-pest associations, influences on growing practices, and color photos.
