Summary In Virus-Insect-Plant Interactions, the world's leading scientists discuss the latest breakthroughs in understanding the biological and ecological factors that define these complex transmission systems and how this knowledge might be used to our advantage in producing innovative, user and environmentally friendly approaches to controlling the spread of plant pathogens by insects. This is an invaluable reference work for researchers, teachers, and students. There are many quick-reference figures and tables, the contents pages include individual chapter abstracts, and each chapter ends with its own bibliography. Key Features * presents the most significant research breakthroughs of the past two decades * contains eighteen chapters by forty-two world-renowned researchers * invaluable reference work for researchers, teachers and students * each chapter ends with its own bibliography * contents pages of forematter include individual chapter abstracts * contains many quick-reference figures and tables
