Insect pests of crops cause enormous damage and expense worldwide. Many crop pests and plant diseases they transmit have been successfully controlled in the past with agro-chemicals but many have developed resistance to these chemical controls. Also, the phenomenon of climate change and global warming presents a danger of many pests and diseases migrating as the climate shifts creating new dangers from invasive insect pests.
Wiley is pleased to announce the publication of the Handbook of Agricultural Entomology, a reference and textbook for swift identification and information on all major insect pests and the damage they cause to crops.
Written by one of the world's leading entomologists, Handbook of Agricultural Entomology is a landmark publication for students and practitioners of entomology applied to agriculture and horticulture. It can be used as a reference and as a general textbook.
