A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. Planthoppers include some of the most devastating pests of major agricultural crops throughout the world. One species, the rice brown planthopper, is among the most economically important pests in Asia. In past decades, government policies encouraged the control of rice planthoppers with synthetic pesticides, a tactic which promoted insecticide resistance and often led to the pesticide-induced resurgence of pest populations. To deter planthopper outbreaks, a more ecologically sound management strategy is being implemented, one based on a thorough investigation of population dynamics, natural enemies, and the genetics of host plant and insecticide adaptation. In the natural habitats of North America and Europe, scientists have also used planthoppers as model organisms to test ecological and evolutionary theory. The consequence of these diverse studies is an extremely scattered literature on planthoppers that has never been synthesized from an ecological perspective. This volume summarizes what is known about planthopper ecology and biological control. It takes a theoretical approach yet is deeply concerned with the application of theory to the practical problems of pest management. N° de réf. du libraire LIB9780412023415

Review:

The text is clearly organized. The chapter summaries are particularly useful............The last chapter is the most interesting as it details the problems and solutions of implementing an effective IPM educational program in rural Asia...........It is a useful compilation of scattered data...Over 1700 references are listed, of which 83% represent papers published in the last quarter century....... - Entomological Society of America; The text is clearly organized.
