GLOBAL PESTICIDE RESISTANCE IN ARTHROPODS
M. E. Whalon, D. Mota-Sanchez and R. M. Hollingworth, editors
2008, 208 pages. Pesticide resistance has a substantial impact on crop production and has been an important driver of change in modern agriculture, animal production and human health. Due to increased selection pressure, this resistance can be linked to export/import health and phytosanitary standards, invasive species eradication projects, and global pandemics. However, the development of new biological and chemical products and the use of integrated pest management strategies have been successful in reducing pesticide resistance.
This book provides a comprehensive review of relevant issues in pesticide resistance. Detailed listings and references to all documented reports of resistance from around the world are included as well as discussions on the mechanisms and evolution of resistance and management techniques. A CABI publication; hardcover; 7 x 9-7/8″.
