Here, for the first time, is a comprehensive handbook on Australian economic entomology for field crops and pastures. It is organised by commodities - such as cereals, sugar and tropical pasture legumes - allowing all the arthropods on a particular commodity to be examined. Covering all areas of Australia where the commodity is grown, the book also describes beneficial insects, both native and introduced that act as biological control agents.
This book is clearly presented and written in simple easy to understand language. For anyone working or interested in the field of crop management and the control of the many pests that favour our system of broad scale monoculture this will be a truly valuable reference. "
