Global pesticide resistance in arthropods.

Book cover for Global pesticide resistance in arthropods.

Description

This book contains 6 chapters focusing on the following topics: analysis of global pesticide resistance in arthropods; documentation of pesticide resistance in arthropods; the biochemical and molecular genetic basis of resistance to pesticides in arthropods; assessing the risk of the evolution of resistance to pesticides using spatially complex simulation models; pesticide and transgenic plant res...

Analysis of global pesticide resistance in arthropods.

This chapter reports the findings and analysis contained in a database of arthropod pesticide resistance and resistance management strategies. We also report resistance case analysis by chemical mode of action, top 20 most problematic arthropods, and decade analysis. We view this effort as the beginning of an automated era of pesticide resistance case reporting globally.
