This, the first volume of the 'Integrated Management of Plant Pests and Diseases' book series, presents general concepts on integrated pest and disease management. Section one includes chapters on infection models, resurgence and replacement, plant disease epidemiology and effects of climate change in tropical environments. The second section includes remote sensing and information technology. Finally, the third section covers molecular aspects of the subject.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"IPM/IDM (integrated pest management/integrated disease management) began in the 1960s as a movement to reduce the amount of pesticides in the environment and to develop sound, biologically based, integrated management strategies to control plant pests and diseases. . Selected topics cover the relationships of IPM/IDM with advances in use of global positioning systems, the dynamics of global warming, application of information technology, deployment of gene management strategies, use of genetically modified hosts, and introduction of novel biological controls. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-level undergraduates and above." (R. Frederiksen, CHOICE, Vol. 45 (6), 2008)
