Resistance by insects and other arthropod pests to chemically-based control strategies is a major problem in crop protection as well as in medical and veterinary entomology. For every new approach to pest control, it seems that resistance is likely to develop. This work addresses these issues and is based on a Discussion Meeting held at the Royal Society, London, in April 1998. Contributions include scientists from research groups in Europe, North America, Asia and Australia. The papers have also been published as an issue of the journal "Philosophical Transactions: Biological Sciences", published by the Royal Society. Topics include molecular genetics, mechanisms, ecological genetics and management. There is also discussion of the genetically delivered toxicant derived from the insect pathogen Bacillus thruingiensis. The book should be of interest for agricultural, medical and veterinary entomologists concerned with pest management.
Genes and mechanisms; ecological genetics and management.
