Fast and reliable comprehensive on Arthropod-Plant Interactions: it provides the reader “all what you want to know as an expert” and also “all what you need to know to become an expert”
Written by a distinguished international group of contributors
Well-organized format provides for concise, readable entries, easy searches, and thorough cross-references
Complete up-to-date coverage of many important topics - essential information for scientists, students, and professionals alike
The book consists of multiple chapters by leading experts on the different aspects in the unique relationship between arthropods and plants, the underlying mechanisms, realized successes and failures of interactions and application for IPM, and future lines of research and perspectives. Interesting is the availability of the current genomes of different insects, mites and nematodes and different important plants and agricultural crops to bring better insights in the cross talk mechanisms and interacting players. This book will be the first one that integrates all this fascinating and newest (from the last 5 years) information from different leading research laboratories in the world and with perspectives from academia, government and industry.
