Biotechnological research has provided key developments in pest control agents,
focusing on pathogens of insect pests as formulated biological pesticides. Emphasis has
been placed on bacteria and viruses as they are well understood and easily manipulated.
Microbial Biopesticides provides a comprehensive overview of the advances made in the
use of bacteria, fungi and viruses, focusing on behavioral, chemical and molecular aspects.
The authors discuss the potential of nematode-based biochemical agents and bioherbicides
and explore the role of microbial biopesticides in integrated pest management and their
prospects for commercial exploitation.
