Although based on the first edition from the second edition is in fact a new book. This is superficially documented by an additional pages and more than 20 new figures. Detailed diagnoses of more than genera and comprehen-sive lists of species and genera including their synonymies are provided.
The author has re-organized larger parts of the system, introduced new terms and re-established earliersynonymized taxa. Many taxonomists will find themselves at variance with other alterations and only time will tell their validity. The author hasspent considerable eorts on keys to enable readers to identifyspecimens at least to genus level in some economically or typical taxa. Summarizing it must be said that this book is without any doubt a real treasure and an unequalled source of informa-tion on the important nematode order Tylenchida.
The bookcan be highly recommended as a unique reference work for everybody working on plant and insect parasitic nem-atodes. Marcel Dekker, Inc. The book oers an overview of technologies that are drivingthe rapid proliferation of microbial-based pest control, byexamining the state-of-the-art science and technology for thedevelopment, production, mode and mechanism of action, and application of bacterial and viral insecticides, biofungicides,bioherbicides, and mycoinsecticides.
The first part five chapters is exclusively concerned with Bacillus thuringiensis Bt andprovides a comprehensive review of: Bt delta-endo-toxins;Bt-subspecies; products based on genetically modified Bt and on transgenic Bt organisms and Bt plants; formulations ofbacterial insecticides; and insect resistance towards Bt toxins. This part comprehensively covers all aspects of Bt and the improvements that are required, as seen in practice byresearchers and users.
The real potential of these agents for integrated control applications are reviewed, butcould have been discussed a little more critically. In the lastpart a noteworthy overview of the integrated use of biopes- ticides and use with synthetic pesticides is given. Herein the factors that contribute to the ultimate success of biological products eciency, dependability, cost-eectiveness, safety for humans, the crop and environment are all considered critically.
Each of the 11 chapters is accompanied by concluding remarks and by a list of relativelyup-to-date references a total of more than An outcome of this work is the realization that thedevelopment of reliable biological products depends onunderstanding the pathogens, the hosts and their interactions Book Reviews Find plant A,… Documents.
