This volume provides background theory and practical protocols for bioassays of bacteria, viruses, fungi, microsporidia and nematodes that can be used as biological control agents against insect pests of agricultural and medical importance. In addition, experimental design and statistics, computational modeling for bioassay analysis, and relevant legislation are described. With contributions from internationally recognized scientists from their respective fields, this book will be of particular value to researchers both experienced and inexperienced in this area.

"It is a marvelous bible for aspiring entomologists to dip into for ideas on ways to conduct biological assays.... I recommend that it should sit on the laboratory shelf of all entomologists who are involved in agricultural research today."
