With the ever-increasing resistance of pests to pesticides and the growing concern over environmental pollution, it becomes evident that the problem of pest attack on crops cannot be solved by any one system. Separate controls need to be integrated into a complex measure, of which biological control would be one component. A rapidly growing factor in biological control is the harnessing of pathogens, showing particular progress have been selected from the major taxonomic divisions, as subjects for a series of compact chapters about their identification, practical use and toxins. Other chapters investigate the potential of genetic engineering; aspects of technology and integration such as formulation, application machinery, ecology and biostatistical modelling; safety and the insects' defence mechanisms; and impressions of use and research in the People's Republic of China. Each of the sixty authors and co-authors is a specialist, writing closely around his own field. Microbial Control of Insects and Mites the 1971 forbear of this book, assessed the subject up to 1970. As a broadly-based reference work, it revealed almost as many problems as solutions, and left inevitable gaps in coverage. This new work is a sequel and a supplement to the now critically-acclaimed initial work and not a revision or new edition: repetition of that material is stringently avoided. The present work covers new material appearing since 1970 and fills some of the gaps. In particular, the scope has been widened to include the use of competitors, inhibitors and diseases of plant pathogens as alternatives to chemical fungicides and bactericides. Although essentially a practical book, it delves deeply into fundamental information when an understanding of the subject is necessary to the reader. Each chapter attempts to probe the future, while the final chapter provides an analysis of the decade's strategy and progress. A painstaking conciseness exercised by contributors and editors has enabled this vast subject to be encompassed in a single volume. The work is aimed at a wide readership of pest control practitioners, research workers, students and lecturers seeking new information on advanced topics. It will interest insect pathologists, entomologists, plant pathologists, ecologists, biochemists and virologists as well as microbiologists generally. Those who have benefitted from its forbear will find this an essential complement to that work.

The book provides a reference to biological control of arthropod pests in agriculture and of public health importance in Iran. A quick glance over the literature shows a long history of biocontrol attempts in the country. Some historically important events highlighting the interest of Iranian academic, research and extension fields to the natural enemies and their applied aspects are provided. Iran, with an exception of the former USSR, was a pioneer in both basic and applied biocontrol in West Asia. The book consists of four parts: three parts for predators, parasitoids and pathogens, and last part for other approaches and analyses of the current state of biological control in Iran. The book provides the most up-to-date information on pest control and related topics of entomology in Iran. The chapters are written by scholars from major Universities and research centers in Iran.

Annotation. Biological control has made a major contribution to integrated pest management (IPM) in Africa, but its documentation has been scattered and often under-reported. This book provides a review of the most important studies, including not only successes, but also on-going challenges. The focus is on arthropod pests and weeds, but diseases are also covered where significant. In 24 chapters, case studies and promising research results are presented that cover biocontrol by naturally occurring agents, by exotic agents or by seasonal manipulation. This book provides a valuable resource for scientists worldwide. It is particularly useful for pest control professionals working in Africa.

Worldwide concern in scientific, indusbial, and governmental com munities over traces of toxic chemicals in foodstuHs and in both abiotic and biotic environments has justified the present biumvirate of specialized publications in this field: comprehensive reviews, rapidly published progress reports, and archival documentations. These three publications are integrated and scheduled to provide in international communication the coherency essential for nonduplicative and current progress in a field as dynamic and complex as environmental contamination and toxicology. Until now there has been no journal or other publication series reserved exclusively for the diversified literature on "toxic" chemicals in our foods, our feeds, our geographical surroundings, our domestic animals, our wild life, and ourselves. Around the world immense efforts and many talents have been mobilized to technical and other evaluations of natures, locales, magnitudes, fates, and toxicology of the persisting residues of these chemicals loosed upon the world. Among the sequelae of this broad new emphasis has been an inescapable need for an articulated set of authorita tive publications where one could expect to find the latest important world literature produced by this emerging area of science together with documentation of pertinent ancillary legislation.
