Entomology And Pest Management

Pedigo and Rice expertly combine basic and applied entomology in this reader-friendly, pedagogically rich text. Assuming only a background in elementary biology, the authors present the major elements of general entomology before moving on to concepts in insect biology and ecology necessary for understanding insect pest management. Both theory and practice are emphasized as readers explore pertinent topics. The authors discuss pest-management issues—both preventive and curative—as aspects of applied ecology, with solutions considering environmental quality, profitability, and durability. Insect diagnostic boxes with detailed information on distribution, importance, appearance, and life cycles of particular species and groups appear throughout the text. Readers will come away with a comprehensive introduction to applied, sustainable pest management appropriate for whatever commodities they must handle.

Excellent book and helpful in my IPM class at Cosumnes River College, Sacramento, CA. Professor David Andrews.Highly recommend to get a more detailed spin on IPM and how true bugs, nymphs, and mites can and are affected during the IPM process.

This is a really good text, it is easy to read and understand but contains top tier information that brings your knowledge up to a high level (eg grad studies). I used it for background for my comprehensive exam and learned the framework to put ent papers into context of IPM .good book! and actually interesting!

It was required for school, and it served it's purpose. I'm no entomologist, but I thought it was decent and a great price.

Yup, it's a book about bugs. What makes them tick and how to manage them. Great info for an entomology class.

Dr. Pedigo's book is one of the better general entomology/ pest management textbooks that I have read. It is written in an understandable format and provides a good introduction to the structure, function, taxonomy, and applied ecology of insects. This volume is most appropriate for the undergraduate student interested in entomology although it would also be a handy addition to a graduate student's library as well. As with many introductory entomology textbooks, the taxonomic keys are very limited. I would recommend Borror, Triplehorn, and Johnson's: An introduction to the study of insects to anyone who desires a book with a good set of taxonomic keys.

I would be most appreciate to informe that "ENTOMOLOGY AND PEST MANAGEMENT" has been used as a comrehensive text for three courses in dep. of plant protection,fac. of agriculture,Zabol university,Iran by me,Ph.D OF entomology and faculty member of Zabol University&Gorgan University of Agriculture.Third edition of this book has translated to Persian(in press) and Unfortunatly this new edition of book not available in Iran and many difficulties are in Iran for book buying.I am waiting and expecting to recieve preforma or other information to having this book impatiencly&eagerly. with best regard Javad Karimi(Dep. of Plant Protection;Fac. of Agriculture,Tehran University,Karaj,Iran)

Very nice book!! It was delivered before the day that I expected it. nice!

The book is great! Just got a test back on Friday and made a 97 on it! I was the highest grade in the class so the book is right on with its information. Thanks!
