Insecticide resistance : from mechanisms to management by Ian Denholm( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Resistance by insects and other arthropod pests to chemically-based control strategies is a major problem in crop protection as well as in medical and veterinary entomology. For every new approach to pest control, it seems that resistance is likely to develop. This book addresses these topical issues and is based on a Discussion Meeting held at the Royal Society, London, in April 1998. Contributors include scientists from leading research groups in Europe, North America, Asia and Australia. The book is essential reading for agricultural, medical and veterinary entomologists concerned with pest management
Insect-plant interactions and induced plant defence by Symposium on Insect-plant Interactions an Induced Plant Defence( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Insect-Plant Interactions and Induced Plant Defence Chair: John A. Pickett 1999 This book examines the sophisticated mechanisms that plants use to defend themselves against attack by insects and pathogens, focusing on the networks of plant signalling pathways that underlie these defences. In response to herbivory, plants release a complex blend of as many as 100 volatile chemicals, known as semiochemicals ('sign chemicals'). These act as an airborne SOS signal, revealing the presence of the herbivore to the predators and parasitoids that are its natural enemies. Plants also have endogenous def
