Chapter 5 (Page no: 90)

Assessing the risk of the evolution of resistance to pesticides using spatially complex simulation models.

This chapter discusses the principal features governing the evolution of pesticide resistance, including mutation, gene flow, initial gene frequency, fitness, genetic drift in arthropod resistance and selection intensity, while discussing spatially complex models and their role in pest management practices.
