ENTOMOLOGISTS PUBLISH FIRST BOOK ON ASIAN CITRUS PSYLLID AND HLB

2015_Stansly_P_465x581

The first book on the Asian citrus psyllid (ACP) and huanglongbing (HLB) edited by Drs. Jawwad Qureshi and Phil Stansly was recently published by the Center for Agriculture and Biosciences International (CAB International).

This book, written by a team of experts on the Asian citrus psyllid, gathers together everything currently known about the biology and ecology of this important pest species, examines the transmission and acquisition processes of the pathogen, and looks at current management practices and their effectiveness. The potential for new, innovative management techniques are also described along with the economic implications of managing this rapidly establishing disease. This book presents a great source of knowledge for researchers of entomology and related disciplines, students, agricultural scientists and professionals, extension agents, and pest management consultants.

HLB Database The Citrus Greening Database is a cooperative effort between the UF/IFAS and the Florida Center for Library Automation and is made possible by funding from the Florida Citrus Production Advisory Council.
