Although the concept and philosophy of integrated pest management have been largely accepted for some time, its implementation is complex and faces numerous potential problems. If IPM is to enjoy widespread approval and adoption, it must be clearly defined and economically and socially acceptable. This book addresses many of the key issues surrounding IPM, particularly of insects, in a number of specially commissioned chapters. Contributors, mainly from the USA, are internationally recognizes experts on their subjects. Topics covered include: the pesticide paradox in IPM, a risk-benefit analysis; transgenic crops in IPM; manipulation of host finding and acceptance behavior in insects; the relevance of modelling IPM implementation; IPM and sustainable development; consumer response to IPM.
