Garden pests plague everyone who has ever raised vegetables, from backyard gardener to professional horticulturists, farm managers, and agrobusiness professionals. The economic impacts of vegetable pests are enormous. To manage and minimize the adverse impacts of pests, it is important to identify exactly which pests are afflicting crops. The Handbook of Vegetable Pests is intended to assist anyone in need of an easy-to-use, and yet comprehensive, survey of all pests likely to be encountered in North America. This Handbook provides thorough identification guides, descriptions of pest life history, and pest management recommendations. The text is well illustrated with hundreds of easy-to-use line drawings, is cross-referenced to the professional and scientific literature, and includes color plates for ease of insect pest identification. Every gardener, horticulturalist, farm manager, and plant science professional should have this Handbook as a ready desk reference.

Key Features

* Over 600 black and white line drawings and over 100 color images to further aid in identification

About the Author:

John Capinera, University of Florida, Institute of Food and Agriculture Sciences, Gainesville, Florida, U.S.A.

Review:

"...the quality of information provided on two species if insects...all were found to be excellent...I also found information of other species of insects with which I am less familiar to be highly readable and informative...in short, the Handbook is an excellent guide to pests-particularly insects- of North American vegetables and is suitable for use by both entomologists and other agricultural professionals."-ENTOMOLOGICAL SOCIETY OF CANADA (March 2002)
"The state purpose of this handbook is 'a reference for professionals in agriculture'...However, people with vegetable gardens should find this handbook helpful in the identification of insect invaders. ...highly recommended without reservations for all academic, public, and special library collections, which have concentrations in the areas of entomology, gardening, horticulture and plant science."
-E-STREAMS (April 2002)
"Vegetable scientists will benefit, as should dedicated cultivators, from this work. The exquisite details fleshing out each pest are meticulously culled from more than 3,000 (provided) references, carefully organized, and lucidly presented. ...The bredth, depth, and quality of coverage are impressive. This scholarly resource is the best yet on vegetable insects."
-Marvin K. Harris for AMERICAN REFERENCE BOOKS ANNUAL (2002)
"This definitive text is a model for the practical application of scientific knowledge to farming and horticulture. It is difficult to imagine a better-written and organized survey of knowledge related to pests. ...While this book is written for the professional, the intelligent inquirer of any level of curiosity will be by turns informed and astonished."
-CURRENT BOOKS ON GARDENING AND BOTANY (December 2001)
"This is the best resource available on vegetable pests for the scholar or producer designing or conducting a management program. Highly recommended."
-M.K. Harris, Texas A&M University, in CHOICE (December 2001)
