About this product
- DescriptionAs ravagers of crops and carriers of diseases affecting plants, humans and animals, insects present a challenge to a growing human population. In Pest and Vector Control, first published in 2004, Professors van Emden and Service describe the available options for meeting this challenge, discussing their relative advantages, disadvantages and future potential. Methods such as chemical and biological control, host tolerance and resistance are discussed integrating (often for the first time) information and experience from the agricultural and medical/veterinary fields. Chemical control is seen as a major component of insect control, both w and in the future, but this is balanced with an extensive account of associated problems, especially the development of pesticide-tolerant populations.
- Author BiographyBased in Reading University, Professor van Emden has written over 160 research articles and has over 40 years' experience of teaching agricultural pest management. Professor Mike Service has been teaching medical entomology for over 30 years and has written over 200 research papers.
