Now reissued in softcover, this book is designed to help the reader anticipate and recognize specific problems of pest management and then resolve them using the natural enemies of pests -- insects, mites and diseases. An introductory section describes the impact on predator/prey relationships and the population dynamics of host species environments for arable, orchard and protected plants. The main sections on pest profiles, beneficial species and entomopathogens provide a pest identification guide and concise text dealing with species characteristics, life cycle, damage symptoms, plant/pest association and influence on growing practices. Packed with over 300 color photographs of the highest quality, this handbook will be a valuable reference guide for professional, academic and lay readers, including growers, farmers, consultants, scientists and students.
