New Book Announcements


Integrated Pest Management
Potential, Constraints and Challenges

Edited by O Koul, Insect Biopesticide Research Centre, Jalandhar, India, G S Dhaliwal, Punjab Agricultural University, India, and G W Cuperus, Oklahoma State University, USA

Publication Date: June 2004
Number of Pages: 336 Pages
Binding: Hardback
ISBN: 0 85199 686 8
Price: �.00  (US$120.00)

IPM Systems need to be developed for agriculture to be economically and environmentally strong, in production, storage, and food processing. Although the concept and philosophy of integrated pest management have been largely accepted for some time, its implementation is complex and faces numerous potential problems. If IPM is to enjoy widespread approval and adoption, it must be clearly defined and economically and socially acceptable. The topics covered in this book include a range of topics, such as: risk-benefit analysis, transgenic crops in IPM and consumer response to IPM.

Nematology: Advances and Perspectives Vol I Nematode Morphology, Physiology and Ecology

Edited by Z X Chen, Michigan State University, S Y Chen, University of Minnesota and D W Dickson, University of Florida, USA

Publication Date: June 2004
Number of Pages: 656 Pages
Binding: Hardback
ISBN: 0851996450
Price: �.00  (US$150.00)

Nematodes are the most abundant and diversified group in the animal kingdom, with four out of five animals on earth being nematodes. Nematology was first recognised as an independent discipline during the early part of the century and since that time has made unparalleled advances to become an integral part of biological sciences.

Written as two volumes, this title provides a broad overview of our current knowledge of nematology. This first volume addresses basic biology, while the second covers applied aspects of nematodes as parasites of plants, humans and other animals, or as disease vectors, and the control of pest nematodes. The contributors to this work include the world抯 leading authorities from Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, New Zealand, UK and USA. It will provide essential reading for researchers and students with an interest in nematology.

Nematode Behaviour

Edited by R Gaugler, Rutgers University, New Jersey, USA, and A L Bilgrami, Aligarh Muslim University, India

Publication Date: June 2004
Number of Pages: 432 Pages
Binding: Hardback
ISBN: 0 85199 818 6
Price: �.00  (US$140.00)

Nematode worms are among the most ubiquitous organisms on earth. They include free-living forms as well as parasites of plants, insects, humans and other animals. In recent years there has been an explosion of interest in nematode biology, including the area of nematode behaviour. The latter has, however, until now, not been synthesized into a single comprehensive volume.

Nematode Behaviour seeks to redress this imbalance by providing the first comprehensive review of current knowledge of the behaviour of nematodes. Key topics including locomotion and orientation, feeding and reproductive behaviour, and biotic and abiotic interactions are reviewed by leading authorities from the USA, UK, India and New Zealand.

Biological Control in IPM Systems in Africa

Edited by P Neuenschwander, International Institute of Tropical Agriculture, Benin Station, Cotonou, Benin, (IITA), C Borgemeister, Institute of Plant Diseases and Plant Protection, University of Hannover, Germany and J Langewald, IITA, Benin

Publication Date: June 2003
Number of Pages: 448 Pages
Binding: Hardback
ISBN: 0851996396
Price: �.00  (US$140.00)

Biological control has made a major contribution to integrated pest management (IPM) in Africa, but its documentation has been scattered and often under-reported. This book provides a review of the most important studies, including not only successes, but also on-going challenges. The focus is on arthropod pests and weeds, but diseases are also covered where significant. In 24 chapters, case studies and promising research results are presented that cover biocontrol by naturally occurring agents, by exotic agents or by seasonal manipulation. This book provides a valuable resource for scientists worldwide. It is particularly useful for pest control professionals working in Africa.

Quality Control and Production of Biological Control Agents
Theory and Testing Procedures

Edited by J C van Lenteren, Department of Entomology, Wageningen University, The Netherlands

Publication Date: June 2003
Number of Pages: 352 Pages
Binding: Hardback
ISBN: 0851996884
Price: �.00  (US$120.00)

The use of biological control agents has been increasing worldwide and there are now many companies mass-producing such organisms, particularly for the control of insect pests. However, there is a great need for quality control in the production and use of these natural enemies, which include insect parasitoids and predators, fungi and viruses. This book has been written by leading scientists from Europe and North America to provide both background theory and practical guidance on this subject.

Publication Date: June 2003
Number of Pages: 544 Pages
Binding: Hardback
ISBN: 0851993907
Price: �.50  (US$175.00)

This book offers a comprehensive review of diseases of important tropical and some subtropical fruit crops. The history, distribution, importance, etiology, epidemiology and control of diseases of each host crop are covered, along with brief summaries on the taxonomy, origins and characteristics of each host. Additional information is given on the biology and pathology of the causal agents and on new advances that change or otherwise enhance our understanding of the nature and cause of these diseases. Plant pathologists, plantation and nursery managers, lecturers and those who are involved in tropical agriculture and horticulture will find this an essential reference.
