Manipulative Tenants: Bacteria Associated with Arthropods
In efforts to summarize the most up-to-date information available on bacterial symbionts of arthropods, this text provides an overview of primary symbionts in addition to 10 of the most abundant secondary symbionts known to date. The editors have brought together entomogists and microbiologists to create a full picture of the complex systems, thus encouraging the integration of theory and practice in efforts to find innovative routes to pest and disease management. The book provides comprehensive knowledge and a unique perspective on a fast-growing field. Figures within the text include diagrams, tables, graphs, pictures, and chemical structures.
