Plant-provided food for carnivorous insects : a protective mutualism and its applications( )

17 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Plants provide insects with a range of specific foods, such as nectar, pollen, and food bodies. In exchange, they may obtain various services from arthropods. The role of food rewards in the plant-pollinator mutualism has been covered broadly. This book addresses another category of food-mediated interactions, focusing on how plants use foods to recruit arthropod "bodyguards" as a protection against herbivores." "Many arthropods with primarily carnivorous lifestyles require plant-provided food as an indispensable part of their diet. Only recently have we started to appreciate the implications of non-prey food for plant-herbivore-carnivore interactions. Insight into this aspect of multitrophic interactions is not only crucial to our understanding of the evolution and functioning of plant-insect interactions in natural ecosystems, it also has direct implications for the use of food plants and food supplements in biological control programs." "This edited volume provides essential reading for all researchers interested in plant-insect interactions."--BOOK JACKET
Diseases of mites and ticks by J Bruin( )

12 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The current collection of twenty-four papers is a mixture of primary research articles and literature reviews, presenting a broad overview of the developments in about all possible aspects of acarine diseases, stretching from basic pathology to microbial pest control. The pathogens include fungi, bacteria, and protozoa (as well as an occasional virus and unidentified organism), the hosts are mites and ticks from a great variety of taxa (e.g., Eriophyidae, Ixodidae, Oribatida, Phytoseiidae, Psoroptida, Tarsonemidae, Tetranychidae, Varroidae). These taxa include many infamous mites and ticks, which cause tremendous economical losses throughout the world, for example in greenhouse and field-grown agricultural crops, life stock (cattle, sheep), apiculture, and man. The taxa also include commercially available biocontrol agents, whose mass rearings need to be protected against pathogens
Trends in acarology : proceedings of the 12th International Congress by M. W Sabelis( )

15 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Acari are everywhere and acarologists go after them - some aiming to explore the bewildering diversity of the mites and ticks, others trying to understand the how and why of their being. For the past 50 years, the International Congress of Acarology has been the foremost forum for worldwide communication on the knowledge of mites and ticks, helping researchers and students to look beyond the borders of their disciplines. Many mites and ticks have economic consequences as they are pests of agricultural, veterinary and medical importance, and several species have become model organisms for studies in modern biology. The 96 contributions to Trends in Acarology - reflecting a vast variety of disciplines, such as molecular biology, biochemistry, physiology, microbiology, pathology, ecology, evolutionary biology, systematic biology, soil biology, plant protection, pest control and epidemiology - have all been reviewed and carefully edited. The resulting voIume contains a wealth of new information, that may stimulate research for many years to come."--Page 4 of cover
Eriophyoid mites : their biology, natural enemies, and control by Evert E Lindquist( )

16 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a timely compilation of synthesized information on behaviourally fascinating and economically important mites. The book gives much attention to fundamental aspects of eriophyoid anatomy, behaviour, ecology and even systematics, as bases for understanding the ways of life of eriophyoid mites and their effects on host plants; in turn, this will lead to developing the most appropriate means of regulating mites as detrimental or beneficial organisms. It presents new views intended to stimulate interest in eriophyoids and their enemies, and it points to areas where further research is
Ecology and evolution of the Acari : proceedings of the 3rd Symposium of the European Association of Acarologists, 1-5 July 1996, Amsterdam, the Netherlands by J Bruin( Book )

17 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For a long time the development of Acarology as a field of biological science has been dominated by systematists and applied scientists. In the last 15 years, however, Acari have been more and more recognized as highly suitable for the testing of theories in ecological and evolutionary sciences. The growing interest from evolutionary and molecular biologists and from population and community ecologists in mites and ticks has a strong impetus on the field of Acarology, and already led to significant progress. This book contains many chapters that illustrate the recent progress in - mainly evolutionary and ecological aspects of - Acarology."--Jacket
