About this book

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) has become a major area of research for applied entomologists, ecologists, agricultural workers, and crop protection specialists. This volume brings together recent advances in ecological theory as they apply to IPM to produce an up-to-date reference for all involved in this discipline. The wide range of developments covered include topics such as molecular ecology, spatial scale, GM crops and biological control. The volume examines the significance and potential impact of such developments for the future of IPM.
