Integrated information-based reviews, divulgated for application in plant protection and nematode management of key perennial fruit crops
Covers the basic concepts and knowledge required to develop applied research and identification of nematode problems in the tropics, for management
Review of key economic plant nematodes in Mediterranean crops
Actualized concepts needed for practical professional work worldwide
Description of some molecular technologies (for developments in quarantine and detection)
The fourth volume of the IPMD Series covers, in three Sections, emerging issues in the integrated management of main nematode parasites of fruit, tree and forest crops. The chapters provide basic data about the crops concerned, listing main nematode threats, in order to facilitate their detection and management. Special attention is given to the management strategies as experienced by farmers, nematologists and consultants, in different areas of the world, including exploitation of plant resistance sources and integrated or organic management. The first Section covers key nematode parasites of tropical fruit crops, including banana, cocoa, coffee, citrus and other tropical crops, and the related management options. In the second Section, nematode problems of grapevine and other Mediterranean crops like pistachio, Prunus spp. and olive are revised. Epidemiology data and management options are given, ranging from the status of grapevine resistance to vector species, to available chemicals, plant quarantine schemes and virus vectors control tools. In the third final Section, an updated review of Pine Wilt Nematode is provided, with new data on the threat represented by its spreading in Western Europe. The book approaches a broad range of subjects in a traditional way, with dedicated and detailed chapters, written by experienced nematologists, on defined topics. This approach provides a focus on the nematological issue of interest or that the reader has to afford, allowing the problem identification and illustrating the solutions developed and experienced by the authors. The general aim of the book, in an integration effort with Vol. 2 of the same IPMD series, is to provide updated background data together with a range of solutions for important nematode pests, worldwide. The volume is directed to students, technicians, extensions and scientists, providing contents of a professional level. Basic concepts and practical examples are provided, useful to enable the reader to analyse and act in relation to his own conditions, crop environment and nematode population parameters. Among the features and benefits of the book also figure practical management data, updated bibliographies and exhaustive illustrations.
