9780123849847: Insect Pathology, Second Edition

The first edition of Tanada and Kaya’s Insect Pathology is the standard reference in the field for researchers and both undergraduate and graduate students and is well known worldwide among entomologists. However, the field has seen rapid advances in the 20 years since its original publication, and the new edition brings together an essential and updated resource for researchers with 13 chapters edited by Fernando E. Vega and Harry K. Kaya.

Many of these advances involve new insights on ecology as well as phylogenetics and molecular biology of viruses, bacteria, fungi, microsporidia, nematodes, and protists. All these aspects, as well as basic biology, diagnosis, infectious process and pathogenesis, host response, transmission and more, are covered by renowned experts in their respective fields. The second edition of Insect Pathology includes chapters on the history of this discipline, principles of microbial control and epizootiology, diseases of beneficial insects, host resistance, and Wolbachia. This thoroughly illustrated and up-to-date revision will provide insect pathologists, entomologists, microbiologists, mycologists, nematologists, protistologists, ecologists, and practitioners of biological control of insect pests with a solid and much-needed reference.

  • Covers all major groups of insect pathogens
  • Includes chapters on the history of insect pathology, principles of microbial control and epizootiology, host resistance, Wolbachia and diseases of beneficial insects
  • Includes contributions from the leading researchers and emerging leaders in their fields

Review:

"This edited book is an excellent new work spanning the breadth of the field of insect pathology.A new summarization of this field was seriously needed due to the extensive changes in taxonomy, the use of new methods, and resulting explosion in knowledge about all groups of insect pathogens."--The Quarterly Review of Biology, June 2013 [N]ominally a second edition of the 1993 text, 'Insect Pathology' by Tanada and Kaya (1993), but differs significantly from this earlier book in scope, organization, content and authorship.. The current book is organized into 13 chapters, each authored by very well-chosen experts in their respective fields.. To address the enormity and complexity of their subject area, Vega and Kaya, although authoring some chapters on their own, have taken advantage of expertise from an impressive roster of researchers to deal with the broad spectrum of information presented.. The book is targeted towards advanced undergraduates and graduate level students, and would provide an excellent basis for insect pathology courses, but would also be an indispensable addition to the library of any researcher interested in insect pathology, entomology, biological control, mycology, virology, bacteriology, protozoology, or nematology."--Society for Invertebrate Pathology Newsletter "19 years after the publication of the 1st edition, the 2nd edition of this text reflects the strides made in the field, and usefully condenses new research and applications into a concise and authoritative text that will benefit a wide range of specialists, including biological control researchers and graduate students. The chapters include discussion of the various pathogens of each insect, their formulation, delivery systems, and resistance, when applicable, with attention to the specific applications on pest insects. Major chapter topics include the history of the field, principles of epizootiology and microbial control, baculoviruses, RNA viruses that infect pest insects, fungal and bacterial entomophathogens, and nematode parasites and entomopathogens. A separate chapter is devoted to diseases of silkworms and bees."--Reference and Research Book News, August 2012, page 239 "With contributions from several experts, the new version is very well written and reads more smoothly when compared to the previous one.  Further, the number of chapters was reduced, but they are better arranged and illustrated.  Every chapter is accompanied by a comprehensive list of references.  It seems that this treatise will become a strong, indispensable tool for those interested in the field for years to come."--CHOICE, October 2012, Vol. 50, No. 02
