It covers the main arthropod pests of twenty five major crops, with colour photographs of their adult and immature stages, their distribution, biology, disease vectors, symptoms of the damage they cause and their natural enemies.
  • This book's recommended readership is: Researchers, practitioners and policy makers of entomology, pest control and crop protection.
