The book covers the recognition of the problems of dysfunctional and indirect economic and environmental consequences of pesticide use in agriculture, through research, and development of different IPM tactics.
Written by an interdisciplinary team of experts from entomology, plant pathology, nematology, plant breeding, plant physiology, biochemistry, and extension education- covering externalities of pesticide use, pest outbreaks, threshold theory, host plant resistance, crop plant manipulation, biological control, behavioral-modifying techniques, botanicals, and non-pesticide pest management. An excellent source of advanced study material for academics, researchers and students, elucidating the underlying concepts of IPM development process.
From the reviews: "Peshin ! and Dhawan (Punjab Agricultural Univ., India) have assembled an interdisciplinary team of 43 experts from eight countries to produce an encyclopedic overview of fundamental concepts and recent advances in integrated pest management (IPM). Their ambitious undertaking is well executed, with a ! combination of breath and detail, and a truly global perspective. The volume is carefully edited and amply referenced. ! For those whose studies relate to IPM, this collection will be an invaluable resource. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through researchers/faculty." (M. K. Bomford, Choice, Vol. 47 (3), November, 2009)
