Concepts in Integrated Pest Management

Concepts in Integrated Pest Management Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With backgrounds in weed science, nematology/plant pathology, and entomology, Norris, Caswell-Chen, and Kogan have created a truly integrated, interdisciplinary approach to learning about pest management.

This first edition text presents the basic principles of integrated pest management as they apply to plant pathogens, weeds, nematodes, mollusks, arthropods, and vertebrates. It reinforces the wisdom and soundness of the integrated pest management (IPM) approach to crop protection, which attempts to limit the deleterious effects of pests in ways that are environmentally, economically, and socially acceptable. Concepts in Integrated Peat Management offers the following benefits:

  • Integration of information on all plant protection disciplines with a comparative approach
  • Provides the reader with a realistic view of the world, which is not fragmented along disciplinary boundaries and shows the interdependence of all organisms in a crop ecosystem Case histories and practical examples
  • Provides support for text information, bringing that information to life in meaningful, applied way
  • Up-to-date with the latest technologies in the field
  • Includes controversial topics that are useful for class discussions

Book News Annotation:

Aimed at upper-level undergraduate and graduate students, this interdisciplinary text presents the basic principles of integrated pest management (IPM) as applied to plant pathogens, weeds, nematodes, mollusks, arthropods, and vertebrates. IPM attempts to limit the destructive effects of pests in ways that are environmentally, economically, and socially acceptable. The text is designed to teach general concepts and is not intended as a manual for the management of specific pests.
