eBook - 2002
Rate this:
Mollusc species currently constitute a major threat to sustainable agriculture. This threat is associated with cultivation of new crops, intensification of agricultural production systems and the spread through human trade and travel of species adapted to these modified environments. In some crops, their significance is only now becoming apparent with the decline in the importance of other pest groups which can be effectively controlled. The book focuses on: toxicology of chemicals, deployment of molluscicides in baits, specific crop situations worldwide, current pest status of mollusc species and progress towards development of solutions.
