Summary "The Whitefly Bemisia tabaci" introduces the different Bemisia tabaci -Geminivirus pathosystems along with the most recent findings and research endeavors
The various systems, each with its own challenge and complexity will unequivocally contribute to existing knowledge
With evolving geminiviruses and the appearance of new B
Tabaci genetic groups, new interaction events and disease epidemics can be anticipated
To this end, chapters are included to deal with geminiviruses of economic importance, and the important molecular techniques used in B
Tabaci identification and research
This book will be an excellent reference source, comprising related chapters devoted to an improved understanding of the intricacies underlying geminivirus disease epidemics in various parts of the world
Since the ultimate goal is to advance such understanding into sustainable management practices against B
Tabaci and the geminiviruses they transmit, concluding chapters deal with management, and possible applications of Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology
