About this book

There is a growing awareness that an understanding of international plant health agreements and protocol is essential in the increasingly free-trade environment of today, and that administrative methods of plant pest control are important in crop production. However, there has been no recent book, which introduces students and practitioners to the subject of plant health and quarantine. This book fills this gap.


Introduction to plant health and quarantine; early history of plant health control measures; international phytosanitary controls; the European Union plant health regime; operation of national plant protection organizations; imports and exports; eradication and containment; principles of certification and marketing schemes; international certification and marketing schemes; indexing and diagnosis in plant health; pest risk analysis; hygiene and precautionary measures. (Part contents.)
