Ecology of Agricultural Pests: Biochemical approaches
W.O.C. Symondson, J.E. Liddell
Springer Science & Business Media, Jun 30, 1996 - Technology & Engineering - 518 pages
Advances in biochemical techniques are revolutionizing the study of invertebrate ecology. Their application to pest problems is generating detailed information on the population genetics of pests, pest-predator relationships and interactions between pests and their environment.

The first of the Systematics Association's publications, The New Systematics, edited by its then president Sir Julian Huxley, was a classic work. Over 60 volumes have now been published in the Association's 'Special Volume' series often in rapidly expanding areas of science where a modern synthesis is required.
