About this book


This volume integrates two diverse yet mutually linked organisms for the benefit of quality and quantity production of horticultural crops. It attempts to fill the gap by providing the synthesis and critical analysis of different management strategies having bearing on agriculture, sustainability and environmental protection and pollination needs of different crops which result in boosting quality and productivity. This book scores over other similar books published in the world by offering many innovative features. There is no comprehensive book available on the subject which could integrate production inhibiting and production promoting components for sustainable and enhanced productivity in horticultural crops.  The compilation of this book is unique in the sense that it does not deal with the conventional way of discussing pest management for different crops but also takes into consideration the role of pollinators and their profitable utilization in the larger context of ecologically based pest management for management of pests on one hand and safety of pollinators on the other. The information provided in this book will be useful to pollination biologists, honeybee biologists in entomology departments, students, teachers, scientists of agriculture, animal behavior, botany, conservation, biology, ecology, entomology, environmental biology, forestry, genetics, plant breeding, horticulture, toxicology, zoology, seed growers and seed agencies.
