In recent years the field of entomology, due in part to the penetration of other disciplines, has made rapid progress. ""Recent Advances in Entomological Research: From Molecular Biology to Pest Management"" includes 25 chapters contributed by more than 40 distinguished entomologists and introduces the latest progress in entomology, from molecular biology, insect-plant interactions and insecticide toxicology, to emerging technologies in pest management. Not only is the book interesting and informative, but it provides useful, innovative research advances and will serve as a valuable resource f.
