2 Fundamentals of Applied Entomology

Pictorial boards with gold title to front panel & spine; This present edition attempted to incorporate their recent research, updating information from the first edition in all chapters and to expand several important topics. The major addition to this was a new chapter 'Insects and Their Environment'. With greater emphasis placed on pest management and its relationship to natural and biological control, the author was of the opinion that students of applied entomology require a background of insect ecology, even if small, to appreciate the ideas and principles of integrated control and an ecosystem approach to the control of arthropod pests. When written, Robert E. Pfadt was Professor of Entomology at the University of Wyoming.
