Manual of Techniques in Insect Pathology
Biological Techniques is a series of volumes aimed at introducing to a wide audience the latest advances in methodology. The pitfalls and problems of new techniques are given due consideration, as are those small but vital details not always explicit in the methods sections of journal papers.
In recent years, most biological laboratories have been invaded by computers and a wealth of new DNA technology and this will be reflected in many of the titles appearing in the series.
The books will be of value to advances researches and graduate students seeking to learn and apply new techniques, and will be useful to teachers of advanced undergraduate courses involving practical or project work.
This manual describes the broad array of techniques that are used in insect pathology. It will provide biologists, insect pathologists, entomologists, and those interested in biological control, with the necessary information to work on a variety of pathogen groups.
This book will be an essential laboratory reference for insect pathologists.
* Step by-step instructions on how to isolate, identify, culture, bioassay and store the major groups of entomopathogens
* Details of the practical knowledge needed by beginners to apply the techniques
* Chapters written by an international group of experts
* Discussion of safety testing of entomopathogens in mammals and also broader methods such as microscopy and molecular techniques
* Provides extensive supplemental literature and recipes for media, fixatives and stains
