Lacewings in the Crop Environment by P. K. McEwen
Book DescriptionLacewings are predatory insects which attack and kill large numbers of insect pests. Lacewings in the Crop Environment addresses both the theoretical and practical aspects of lacewing biology and their use in crop protection. The book opens with a section on lacewing systematics and ecology. Next, lacewings as predators in a wide variety of commercially important crops are reviewed and this is followed by a section on the principles of using lacewings in pest control. The possible impact of genetically modified crops on lacewing populations is also discussed. Finally, a fascinating array of case studies of lacewing use in many crops from around the world is presented, and future uses of lacewings speculated upon. Lacewings in the Crop Environment is an essential reference work and practical handbook for students, researchers of biological control, integrated pest management and agricultural science, and for field workers using lacewings in pest management programmes worldwide.

Author Biography - P. K. McEwen
Andrew Whittington is an entomologist specialised in the identification and naming of insects, most particularly, but not exclusively, dealing with flies (Diptera). He has more than a dozen years' experience as a fly taxonomist, has written approximately 50 scientific papers and described and named more than 60 new species. Andrew has collected extensively in the field, in countries as widespread as Finland, Germany, Hungary, Kenya, Lesotho, Namibia, Scotland, South Africa, Swaziland and Switzerland. During the course of research, he has examined thousands of specimens from all over the world, mainly in the orders (in decreasing magnitude) Diptera, Coleoptera, Neuroptera, Plecoptera, Odonata, Hemiptera, Mecoptera and Hymenoptera. The breadth of knowledge obtained during this broad range of research has been applied previously to forensic, medical, public health and environmental work in South Africa. Andrew is an instructor for online distance learning with global forensic education.
