NN Plant Pests

David V Alford

This volume reviews pests on a crop-by-crop basis, with particular reference to insects and mites. Coverage of pests includes aliens, with host crops introduced and key pests, along with the most interesting pests - irrespective of their status - discussed.

Although emphasis is placed mainly on arable and horticultural field crops, pests of protected crops are also included. Details of the pests' life cycles, status, distribution and the damage they cause are given, and natural enemies of pests are reviewed. The author also examines the impact of pesticides, climate change, crop management practices and the on-farm landscape. 400 pages.
