There is increasing interest in the use of fungi for the control of pests, weeds and diseases. This book brings together perspectives from pathology, ecology, genetics, physiology, production technology, to address the use of fungi as biological control agents.
"This book covers an exceptionally wide range of topics, many of them in considerable depth. It is a good buy and should be on the shelves of all those involved in teaching plant pathology or researching in biological control, as well as scientific libraries with free access to students who will find it useful as an up-to-date treatment of a fascinating area of applied biology."- The Mycologist
"For anyone interested in the areas of mycology, insect and plant pathology or pest management, this is a highly recommended read."- Biological Agriculture and Horticulture
"The study of fungi as agents for the biological control of pests has enjoyed renewed interest among scientists in both research and regulatory settings. This is especially true in light of changes in laws resulting in more restrictions on the use of certain classes of chemical insecticides."John D Vandenberg - , USDA Agricultural Research Service, USA
