Biodiversity and Pest Management in Agroecosystems

This book is an important contribution to the literature on ecologically based pest management. In addition to reviewing relevant aspects of ecological theory and the broader agroecological context of pest management, it presents numerous data sets and case studies from both temperate and tropical farming systems.

Biodiversity and Pest Management in Agroecosystems reflects the authors’ many years of experience, particularly in the chapters on insect management in multiple cropping systems, insect ecology in orchards containing cover crops, and non-crop vegetation effects on insect populations in crop fields.
