The book is an invaluable source of ideas and inspiration for entomologists at all levels from graduate students to more-established researchers and professionals. Fruit flies (Diptera, Tephritidae) is the most important pests of fruit production worldwide. The purpose of this book is to integrate the experiences of leading scientists in the management of fruit flies in the Americas. In this work, species of fruit flies of economic importance are considered in the genera Anastrepha, Rhagoletis, Bactrocera, and Ceratitis. This book will address fruit flies monitoring, biological control, chemical control, cultural control, sterile insect technique (SIT), Integrated Pest Management (IPM), and other control methods. The book provides invaluable resource material to scientists, professionals and students.PPN: PPN: 1884354203Package identifier: Produktsigel: ZDB-2-SEB | ZDB-2-SBL | ZDB-2-SXB
