About this book

This book describes new approaches in insect pest management using entomopathogenic microbes (bacteria, viruses, fungi, nematodes) and includes details of the molecular biology, genetic engineering, exploitation, management and mathematical models of biocontrol. It will be of interest to post-graduate students, research fellows and all those working in insect pest management.
