About this book

Urban Landscape Entomology provides readers with the background skill set to adequately understand and manage many of the complexities of urban landscape pest management. For those who need training in Landscape Entomology, this work serves as a guidebook and resource presented in a topical format. The book is arranged in chapters following a logical sequence, with quality colour images of pests and pest management tactics, such as tree injection procedures. The topical arrangement facilitates easy extraction of information relevant to a particular situation (e.g., management of borers) and uses practical terms without oversimplifying the subject matter. Urban Landscape Entomology is an invaluable resource for practitioners of landscape entomology, including technicians and operations that service local landscape management needs such as horticultural and turfgrass management, and is also a useful reference for advanced courses in Landscape Entomology.
