    Biological Control of Insect Pests Using Egg Parasitoids

    Pesticides: Health, Safety and the Environment

    R4 629,00
    * Provides commercially important information for the agro-chemical industry * Addresses all aspects of public concern relating to human health and the environment including spray drift, bystander, resident and worker exposure * Looks at the future of pesticides in light of the increasing prevalence of genetically modified crops.

    The History of Allelopathy

    R5 143,00

    Herbicide Activity: Toxicology, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

    R3 637,00
    This is a review of recent literature on most of the major classes of herbicide chemistry in commercial use. Aspects of herbicide activity are covered, and related to, for example: photosynthesis; inhibition of amino acid biosynthesis; disruption of cell division and microtubule assembly.

    Exotic Pests and Diseases: Biology and Economics for Biosecurity

    R3 337,00
    Includes ten interdisciplinary case studies that represent a range of pest and disease threats to US agriculture, wildlands, and the urban landscape. This book describes possible government responses to these threats. It educates students, practitioners, and academics in the field of economics, verterinary medicine, plant pathology and entomology.

    Weed Biology and Climate Change

    R4 228,00
    Weed Biology and Climate Change will provide a synthesis of what is known regarding the probable impact of environmental change on weed biology. Chapters will look at impacts of weed biology on agriculture, invasive species that limit ecological diversity and weeds that serve as health risks.

    Environment-Friendly Antiviral Agents for Plants

    R5 349,00
    Plant virus disease is a worldwide threat to agriculture. This book systematically describes the basic theory, new ideas and new methods to discover novel antiviral agents through research on plant immune activation. It includes many illustrations and figures.

    Plant Resistance to Arthropods: Molecular and Conventional Approaches

    R2 497,00
    Arthropod resistant crops reduce pesticide pollution, alleviate hunger and improve human nutrition. This book reviews new information on environmental advantages of plant resistance, transgenic resistance, molecular bases of resistance, and use of molecular markers to map resistance genes.

    Insect Pest Management and Ecological Research

    This book investigates the entomological research requirements of Integrated Pest Management (IPM).

    Multigenic and Induced Systemic Resistance in Plants

    R3 297,00
    Understanding the mechanisms by which plants tolerate attack by pathogens, herbivores, or endure abiotic stress is a crucial part of learning how to enhance plant productivity. This book deals with the ability of plants to tolerate such attacks and stresses, and examines various aspects of resistance responses and mechanisms of resistance.
