About the Authors
  • Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest management. It uses natural predators, pest-resistant plants, and other methods to preserve a healthy environment in an effort to decrease reliance on harmful pesticides. Featuring forty chapters written by leading experts, this textbook covers a broad and comprehensive range of topics in integrated pest management, focused primarily on theory and concepts. It is complemented by two award winning websites, which are regularly updated and emphasize specific IPM tactics, their application, and IPM case studies: Radcliffe's IPM World Textbook - http://ipmworld.umn.edu VegEdge – www.vegedge.umn.edu The two products are fully cross-referenced and form a unique and highly valuable resource. Written with an international audience in mind, this text is suitable for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses on Integrated Pest Management, Insect or Arthropod Pest Management. It is also a valuable resource for researchers, extension specialists and IPM practitioners worldwide.

    • Broad coverage of topics in IPM theory makes this an ideal overview text for teaching
    • Associated online resource http://ipmworld.umn.edu provides the most up-to-date examples of specific control tactics, case studies, and other frequently changing information
    • Each chapter presents substantive reviews of recent literature and points readers to printed and online sources of further information

    Reviews & endorsements

    "This 40-chapter book does an excellent job in reviewing the advances made in IPM, but more importantly in providing additional information that is needed to better the process. The editors have selected an outstanding cadre to analyze overall concepts and unique case studies in adapting IPM. Highly recommended."
    R. Frederiksen, Choice Magazine

    "This is a very good book that should be used in many IPM courses. Its strengths are in the diversity of topics that represents the breadth of IPM. I am pleased that several chapters directly discuss economics and two others describe the value of ecosystem or landscape design for IPM. I feel that this book is a great foundation for teaching modern IPM."
    David Onstad, Entomological Society of America
