Media reviews

"Fourteen contributions take a multidisciplinary approach to the study of fungi as agents of control of pests, weeds, and diseases in an attempt to provide a comprehensive overview of the topic. The articles, presented by Butt (biological sciences, U. of Wales Swansea, UK), Jackson (biological sciences, U of Southampton, UK), and Magan (applied mycology, Cranfield U., UK), explore such issues as the management of insect pests using hyphomycetus fungi, the biological control of root-knot nematodes using a nematopagous fungi, monitoring the fate of biocontrol fungi, strain improvements of fungal pathogens, the spray application of mycopesticide formulations, and safety in using fungal biocontrol agents."--SciTech Book News
