Technical Abstract: Why, where, and when agricultural pest (weeds, insects and diseases) management practices need to be initiated in integrated pest management systems is primarily determined by economic factors. "Economic Thresholds for Integrated Pest Management" is the first text that covers theory, methods, and new developments in this area. While of primary interest to researchers in the field of pest management, the text is a good overview for those wanting to learn more about the rapidly expanding field of pest management.
