Insect pests remain a major threat to crop production primarily because of their ability to inflict severe damage on crop yields, as well as their role as key vectors of disease. Early identification of pests is critical to the success of integrated pest management (IPM) programmes and essential for the development of phytosanitary/quarantine regimes to prevent the introduction of invasive insect pests to new environments.

Advances in monitoring of native and invasive insect pests of crops reviews the wealth of research on techniques to monitor and thus prevent threats from both native and invasive insect pests. The book considers recent advances in areas such as sampling, identifying and modelling pest populations.

With its considered approach, the book explores current best practices for the detection, identification and modelling of native and invasive insect pests of crops. The contributors offer farmers informed advice on how to mitigate a growing problem which has been exacerbated as a result of climate change.

Key Features

• Highlights the relationship between climate change and the emergence of invasive insect crop pests
• Considers the key challenges facing the identification of crop insect pests and the role of new, emerging technologies in improving the rate of detection (e.g. image-based, DNA barcoding)
• Reviews the establishment of successful integrated pest management (IPM) programmes to control and/or eradicate the existence of invasive species.
