About this book

This volume provides background theory and practical protocols for bioassays of bacteria, viruses, fungi and nematodes that can be used as biological control agents against insect pests of agricultural and medical importance. In addition, experimental design and statistics and computational modelling for bioassay analysis are described. With contributions from scientists in Europe, North America and elsewhere, this book should be of particular value to researchers both experienced and inexperienced in this area.


Bioassays of "Bacillus thuringiensis"; bioassay of replicating bacteria against soil-swelling pests; bioassays of entomopathogenic viruses; bioassays of entomogenous fungi; bioassays of microsporidia; bioassays of entomopathogenic nematodes; statistical and computational approaches to bioassay data; legislation affecting the collection, use and safe handling of entomopathogenic microbes and nematodes.
