Academic Press, 23 abr. 2020 - 816 páginas

Handbook of Vegetable Pests, Second Edition, provides two types of diagnostic aids: the easy-to-use "guides to pests of vegetable crops", which guides the reader to the most likely pests of each vegetable crop based on the portion of the plant attacked and the category of pest; and the more technical dichotomous keys for identification of many of the difficult-to-identify species. It includes over 300 common and occasional pest species, detailing the geographic distribution of vegetable pests, host plant relationships, natural enemies, damage, life history, and methods of control and damage prevention.

  • Presents a current and comprehensive synthesis of vetted information for the support of both commercial and home vegetable production
  • Includes over 300 common and occasional pest species, or species complexes, known to affect vegetables grown in the United States and Canada
  • Summarizes the important findings of the last 150 years
  • Provides citations to the original literature
