9780124113381: Virus-Insect-Plant Interactions

In Virus-Insect-Plant Interactions, the world's leading scientists discuss the latest breakthroughs in understanding the biological and ecological factors that define these complex transmission systems and how this knowledge might be used to our advantage in producing innovative, user and environmentally friendly approaches to controlling the spread of plant pathogens by insects. This is an invaluable reference work for researchers, teachers, and students. There are many quick-reference figures and tables, the contents pages include individual chapter abstracts, and each chapter ends with its own bibliography.

Book Description:

The world's leading scientists and the latest breakthroughs

From the Back Cover:

In the past two decades, researchers have made greater strides in understanding virus-insect-plant interactions then the totality of knowledge gained during the previous fifty years. Much of this progress has resulted from the development and application of new technologies, as well as novel improvements and applications of old ones, to understanding and resolving problems caused by a variety of plant virus-insect vector transmission systems. Forty-two of the world's leading and most respected authorities in this field of research present and discuss these recent breakthroughs and, when possible, their significance with respect to devising innovative approaches to interrupting or suppressing transmission cycles and, hence, preventing or lessening disease spread. The book is comprised of eighteen chapters organized under four subtitles: virus localization in plants and vectors; elucidation of transmission mechanisms; molecular aspects of virus-vector interactions; ecology, epidemiology and control. The volume would be a valuable addition to the library of any researcher, teacher or student of pathogen-insect-host interactions.
