About this book

There is a significant and increasing interest in using fungi as biocontrol agents for insect pests in agricultural systems, and also a growing interest in the basic biology of insect-fungal associations from the perspective of parasitism, symbiosis, and infection. Vega and Blackwell are well-regarded workers in this field, and they have assembled an impressive short book of ten chapters to cover the most important topics in this field, incorporating new molecular techniques wherever possible.


"The book should be very useful to lecturers and educators involved in teaching insect-fungal associations to revise and update teaching course topics and material. All in all, I highly recommend this volume to all interested in insect-fungal associations and interactions."-- ycologist's
