An huge range of innovative approaches and information is given
Covers a variety of topics in plant and crop protection through integrated management
Provides a broader view of the basic concepts required to enable the reader to analyze and act with varying conditions, environments and circumstances
The first volume of the Integrated Management of Plant Pests and Diseases book series presents general concepts on integrated pest and disease management, organized in three sections. Section one (modeling, management, environment) includes chapters on infection models, resurgence and replacement, plant disease epidemiology and effects of climate change in tropical environments. Followed by two reviews on IPM in post-harvest and carrot crops. The second section (emerging technologies) includes remote sensing and information technology, integrated by reviews on Bacillus thuringiensis and the role of mycorrhizae in IPM. In the third section (molecular aspects) the management of insect-borne viruses with transmission interference, some novel products for biological control and advances in molecular detection, are discussed.
