Biodiversity deals nice power for handling insect pests. It offers resistance genes and anti-insect compounds; a major diversity of predatory and parasitic typical enemies of pests; and neighborhood ecology-level results working on the neighborhood and panorama scales to ascertain pest build-up. This e-book brings jointly international leaders in theoretical, methodological and utilized features to supply a entire remedy of this fast-moving box.

bankruptcy authors from Europe, Asia, Africa, Australasia and the Americas determine a very overseas scope. themes diversity from medical rules, cutting edge learn equipment, ecological economics and potent conversation to farmers, in addition to case reports of profitable use of biodiversity-based pest administration a few of which expand over hundreds of thousands of hectares or are enshrined as executive policy.

Written to be available to complicated undergraduates while additionally stimulating the professional researcher, this paintings may also help release the ability of biodiversity to convey sustainable insect pest management.
