This volume summarises current developments in integrated pest management (IPM), focussing on insect pests.

Chapters discuss advances in understanding species and landscape ecology on which IPM is founded. The book then reviews advances in cultural, physical and, in particular, biological methods of control. Topics include developments in classical, conservation and augmentative biological control as well as the use of entomopathogenic fungi, viruses, nematodes and semiochemicals. The final parts of the book summarise current research on monitoring pesticide use as well as emerging classes of biopesticides.

What others are saying...

"This book promises to be an invaluable reference for the IPM research community. The editors and authors represent an international pool of experts, as well as many pioneers, in this field. Their reflections on current status and future directions of IPM represent the best perspectives in this area."
Professor Timothy D. Schowalter, Louisiana State University, USA
