This comprehensive report offers an insightful, up-to-date analysis of the issues involved in pest control. The report is designed to offer policymakers, opinion makers, and educators an informed overview of the changing nature of these choices in the twenty-first century. The authors identify seven key issues that future IPM strategies must address: impact of biotechnology on agriculture; genetic diversity and pest adaptability; ecology-based management systems; increased understanding of microflora/fauna in the environment; training and technology transfer; government policies and regulations; and need for continuous assessment of strategy. Chair: Kenneth R. Barker, North Carolina State University.
