About this book

This volume identifies and describes biologically active natural products which can be used to manage a wide variety of pests, including insects, weeds, and fungi. The book presents structure-activity studies of the pest control agents and evaluates active proteins and peptides affecting insects. It also covers the identification of new plant products with unique biological properties.
