Offers a global perspective on weed science by presenting contributions from a group of researchers in 12 countries, reviewed by over 50 experts. It discusses technologies, which could relieve the negative impacts of weeds on crop production in a way that allows growers to optimise profits and preserve human health and the environment.
From the reviews: "Weeds have long been a concern of agriculturalists, and they continue to challenge weed scientists and farmers. ! In 25 chapters, this book deals with such diverse topics as the evaluation of allelopathy, enhancing allelopathy through crop improvement, the beneficial effects of weeds under selected conditions, unique approaches to the study of host-parasite relationships within parasitic weeds, and the examination of 'period thresholds' as opposed to 'zero tolerance' of weeds. ! Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-level undergraduates and above; general readers." (R. Frederiksen, CHOICE, Vol. 42 (5), 2005)
