About this book

There are very few natural enemies so maladapted as to rely on prey as their sole nutritional resource. The importance of non-prey sources of nutrition have received disproportionately less attention than prey when one considers how important non-prey foods are to the evolution and ecology of natural enemies.

This book examines the intricate and diverse interactions between non-prey foods and natural enemies from both parties' perspectives, beginning at an organismal level and taking the reader on a journey that illustrates how these interactions are inextricably tied to the outcome of biological control programs targeting insects and weed seeds.

From the reviews: "This work focuses on the role of non-prey nutritional resources with the worthy goal of improving the understanding and use of natural enemies. Lundgren ! presents the nature and importance of glucophagy, pollinivory, granivory, and mycophagy to natural enemies, followed by an extensive discussion of applications, including diet supplementation strategies, compatibility with genetically modified plants, and biological control of weed seeds. ! Includes taxonomic and subject indexes. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduate through professional collections." (M. K. Harris, Choice, Vol. 47 (2), October, 2009) "This book would be useful for advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and researchers with an interest in biological control natural enemy biology food web dynamics, nutritional ecology, or plant-insect interactions. ! serve as a valuable reference tool. ! The book clearly succeeds in providing a comprehensive overview of the field. ! Relationships of Natural Enemies of Non Prey Foods is a must read for those involved with biological control and arthropod pest management in general."
