Emphasizing the importance of environmentally sustainable approaches, this book evaluates tree fruit pest management from the evolution, ecology and behaviour of insect pests to the implementation of applied biorational programmes in an agroecosystem. Both experimental and applied topics are discussed, including the conceptual framework of integrated pest management, functional and behavioural ecology of a pest, host detection mechanisms and monitoring tool development as well as pest management case studies.

Readership: Academic students and researchers interested in horticulture, crop protection and entomology as well as commercial growers, government extension agents and industry personnel.
