Contents Notes
"This handbook is designed to help the reader recognize and anticipate specific problems of pest management, and then resolve them using the natural enemies of pests - insects, mites and diseases." "The authors first describe the impact of predator-prey relationships on host plant species in arable, orchard and protected environments, and provide practical tips for gardeners. The main sections of the book include profiles of pests, beneficial species and entomopathogens, featuring a tabular pest identification guide and concise text dealing with species characteristics, life cycle, damage symptoms, plant/pest associations and their influence on growing practices. The text is illustrated throughout by 340 photographs of the highest quality." "The handbook is a valuable reference guide for professional, academic and lay readers - growers and farmers, consultants, scientists, students and private gardeners."--Jacket.
