"Insecticides - Pest Engineering" ed. by Farzana Perveen
English | ITAe | 2012 | ISBN: 9789533078953 | 459 pages | PDF | 24 MB
This book is compiled of 24 Chapters divided into 4 Sections. The subject matter in this book should attract the readers concern to support rational decisions regarding the use of pesticides.
Section A focuses on toxicity of organic and inorganic insecticides, organophosphorus insecticides, toxicity of fenitrothion and permethrin, and dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT).
Section B is dedicated to vector control using insecticides, biological control of mosquito larvae by Bacillus thuringiensis, metabolism of pyrethroids by mosquito cytochrome P40 susceptibility status of Aedes aegypti, etc.
Section C describes bioactive natural products from sapindacea, management of potato pests, flower thrips, mango mealy bug, pear psylla, grapes pests, small fruit production, boll weevil and tsetse fly using insecticides.
Section D provides information on insecticide resistance in natural population of malaria vector, role of Anopheles gambiae P450 cytochrome, genetic toxicological profile of carbofuran and pirimicarp carbamic insecticides, etc.
