Insect-Fungal Associations

Ecology and Evolution

Edited by Fernando E. Vega and Meredith Blackwell

There is a significant and increasing interest in using fungi as biocontrol agents for insect pests in agricultural systems, and also a growing interest in the basic biology of insect-fungal associations from the perspective of parasitism, symbiosis, and infection. Vega and Blackwell are well-regarded workers in this field, and they have assembled an impressive short book of ten chapters to cover the most important topics in this field, incorporating new molecular technigques wherever possible. The book should appeal to workers in ecology, entomology, mycology, plant pathology, and biological control and pest management.
