Handbook of Vegetable Pests

 

Academic Press, 2001.

ISBNs 9780121588618

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): Garden pests plague everyone who has ever raised vegetables, from backyard gardener to professional horticulturists, farm managers, and agrobusiness professionals. The economic impacts of vegetable pests are enormous. To manage and minimize the adverse impacts of pests, it is important to identify exactly which pests are afflicting crops. The Handbook of Vegetable Pests is intended to assist anyone in need of an easy-to-use, and yet comprehensive, survey of all pests likely to be encountered in North America. This Handbook provides thorough identification guides, descriptions of pest life history, and pest management recommendations. The text is well illustrated with hundreds of easy-to-use line drawings, is cross-referenced to the professional and scientific literature, and includes color plates for ease of insect pest identification. Every gardener, horticulturalist, farm manager, and plant science professional should have this Handbook as a ready desk reference.

Key Features
* Identification guides list the major and minor pests of each crop family and provide distinguishing characteristics for each pest
* Includes pest profiles that describe the appearance, life history, and management of various pests
* Over 600 black and white line drawings and over 100 color images to further aid in identification
* Detailed glossary provided to help with the definition of some of the less known terms

History of Weed Science in the United States, A

 

Elsevier, 2010.

ISBNs 9780123814951

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés):

It is important that scientists think about and know their history - where they came from, what they have accomplished, and how these may affect the future. Weed scientists, similar to scientists in many technological disciplines, have not sought historical reflection. The technological world asks for results and for progress. Achievement is important not, in general, the road that leads to achievement. What was new yesterday is routine today, and what is described as revolutionary today may be considered antiquated tomorrow.

Weed science has been strongly influenced by technology developed by supporting industries, subsequently employed in research and, ultimately, used by farmers and crop growers. The science has focused on results and progress. Scientists have been--and the majority remain--problem solvers whose solutions have evolved as rapidly as have the new weed problems needing solutions. In a more formal sense, weed scientists have been adherents of the instrumental ideology of modern science. That is an analysis of their work, and their orientation reveals the strong emphasis on practical, useful knowledge; on know how. The opposite, and frequently complementary orientation, that has been missing from weed science is an emphasis on contemplative knowledge; that is, knowing why. This book expands on and analyzes how these orientations have affected weed science’s development.

* The first analytical history of weed science to be written

* Compares the development of weed science, entomology and plant pathology

* Identifies the primary founders of weed science and describes their role
