Andrej Cokl, Miguel Borges, "Stinkbugs: Biorational Control Based on Communication Processes"
2017 | ISBN-10: 1498732801 | 276 pages | PDF | 3 MB

This book presents an overview of the Pentatomidae species, covering their biology, phylogeny and reproductive behavior, main plants used in their diet and their nutritional exigencies, predatory stinkbugs, interactions between herbivores-plants and natural enemies, use of pheromone for monitoring phytophagous populations, and chemical and vibrational communication signals. It also presents possible technologies to be applied in field crops for pest management that could be developed as the basis of the interplay of stink bug communication signals.
