Media reviews
...the quality of information provided on two species if insects...all were found to be excellent...I also found information of other species of insects with which I am less familiar to be highly readable and informative...in short, the Handbook is an excellent guide to pests-particularly insects- of North American vegetables and is suitable for use by both entomologists and other agricultural professionals.-ENTOMOLOGICAL SOCIETY OF CANADA (March 2002) "The state purpose of this handbook is 'a reference for professionals in agriculture'...However, people with vegetable gardens should find this handbook helpful in the identification of insect invaders. ...highly recommended without reservations for all academic, public, and special library collections, which have concentrations in the areas of entomology, gardening, horticulture and plant science." E-STREAMS (April 2002) "Vegetable scientists will benefit, as should dedicated cultivators, from this work. The exquisite details fleshing out each pest are meticulously culled from more than 3,000 (provided) references, carefully organized, and lucidly presented. ...The bredth, depth, and quality of coverage are impressive. This scholarly resource is the best yet on vegetable insects." Marvin K. Harris for AMERICAN REFERENCE BOOKS ANNUAL (2002) "This definitive text is a model for the practical application of scientific knowledge to farming and horticulture. It is difficult to imagine a better-written and organized survey of knowledge related to pests. ...While this book is written for the professional, the intelligent inquirer of any level of curiosity will be by turns informed and astonished." CURRENT BOOKS ON GARDENING AND BOTANY (December 2001) "This is the best resource available on vegetable pests for the scholar or producer designing or conducting a management program. Highly recommended." M.K. Harris, Texas A&M University, in CHOICE (December 2001)
