ID those flower foes

We’ve got an iBook for that. Insect and Mite Pests of Floriculture Crops is now available (for Free!) as an interactive iBook, readable on iPad and Mac devices.

Funded with a grant from the Fred C. Gloeckner Foundation, the current version includes aphids, fungus gnats, leafminers, shoreflies, thrips, and whiteflies.

Additional insect and mite pests will be added to the book over the next two years of the project, so keep an eye on the e-GRO website for future updates. The final version due out in 2017 will also be available in print.

About the Author:

Steve Frank
I am broadly interested in the ecology and management of arthropod pests. Herbivorous arthropods cause extraordinary damage to plants in agricultural, urban, and natural ecosystems. Understanding interactions between pests and their environment, plant hosts, and natural enemies can improve management practices and reduce pesticide applications.
