Abstract

Parasitic weeds of the world: biology and control.

Abstract

This book covers the recognition and biology of parasitic weeds, the precautions that need to be taken to prevent their further spread, and the combination of control measures that can be applied in order to limit their damage. Each of the major parasitic groups is dealt with separately and discussed in detail. Identification keys cover the main species that are likely to occur. The biology and ecology of each group or individual species is then considered with emphasis on how this knowledge may be used in devising the best possible control measures.
