9780007338498: Collins New Naturalist Library: A Natural History of Crop Pests

Reviewing its subject on a crop-by-crop basis with particular reference to insects and mites, this guide covers a wide range of pests, detailing host crops, key pests, and the most interesting types irrespective of their status. Although emphasis is placed mainly on arable and horticultural field crops, pests of protected crops—both edible and non-edible—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. Pests of cereals, oilseed rape and other oil and brassica seed crops, forage and fodder crops, potatoes, sugar beet and related root crops, field vegetables, and more are also discussed.
