"Having examined the major textbooks in this field, I would recommend Zimdahls's Fundamentals of Weed Science if someone were to own just one. The combination of its readability for non-specialists and its emphasis on an holistic approach to weeds set it apart from the others."
--John R. Stepp, University of Georgia, in ECONOMIC BOTANY (Jan-Mar 2001)
"...the book contains a good overview of weed science fundamentals... Fundamentals of Weed Science has many good aspects including its biological and ecological approaches to the improved understanding of weeds."
--Stephen C. Weller, Purdue University, in QUARTERLY REVIEW OF BIOLOGY (March 2001)
"The book will be of value to undergraduate students in weed science; faculty, graduate students, and researchers who need a survey of the basics of weed science; and government and policy officials who need a primer for weed science in order to evaluate impact assessments for particular weed management strategies."
--WEED TECHNOLOGY (1999)
"One of the more thoughtful and extensive overviews of weeds and their management."
