New Perspectives in Plant Protection

Edited by Ali R. Bandani

University of Tehran, Iran

Approximately less than 1000 insect species (roughly 600-800 species), 1500 -2000 plant species, numerous fungal, bacterial and nematode species as well as viruses are considered serious pests in agriculture.

The current book is going to put Plant Protection approaches in perspective.
