The Toxicology and Biochemistry of Insecticides

Describes newly discovered insecticides/acaricides, including their classification and biological activity
Presents information on new modes of action of insecticides, such as how avermectin and fipronil act as blockers of glutamate-gated chloride channels and pymetrozine binds at nAChR
Updates and greatly expands the topic of insecticide resistance, including new mechanisms and pattern of resistance development
Includes more material on microbial insecticides to be consistent with current IPM approaches
Expands coverage of selective toxicity to include the selectivity of pyrethroids, phenylpyrazoles, oxidiazones, anthranilic diamides, Bt, and diacylhydrazines
Covers the toxicity of various insecticide classes on arthropod natural enemies of agricultural pests

About this book

Continuing as the sole book in more than two decades to address this multifaceted field, the Second Edition of this highly praised review on insect toxicology presents the most up-to-date information on insecticide classification, formulation, mode of action, resistance, metabolism, environmental fate, and regulatory legislation. This indispensable book discusses mechanisms at the molecular level, such as specific enzymes that contribute to insecticide resistance. It has been extensively revised and expanded to bring readers up to date on the many aspects and implications of pesticide use.
