iBook for Greenhouse Pest Identification

The 2nd Edition of “Insect and Mite Pests of Floriculture Crops: Identification Guide” by Matt Bertone, Steven Frank, and Bryan Whipker is now available from iTunes. This guide is designed so growers, extension personnel, or anyone else can identify common arthropod pests on greenhouse crops.

This new edition covers aphids, fungus gnats, leafminers, mealybugs, mites, scales, shoreflies, thrips, and whiteflies. Concise biology and management information is paired with galleries of fantastic photographs by Matt Bertone.

Galleries feature multiple views of the pests, their damage, and their natural enemies. The final edition will be out in 2017. And guess what? Its free so download it now! Thanks to a grant from the Fred C. Gloeckner Foundation.

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.
