Pest Management with Natural Products, Hardback Book

Pest Management with Natural Products Hardback

Edited by John J. Beck, Joel R. Coats, Stephen O. Duke, Marja E. Koivunen

Part of the ACS Symposium Series series


This volume and the contributed chapters therein are a result of the Natural Products for Pest Management symposium held at the 244th ACS National Meeting in Philadelphia, PA August 19-23, 2012 to honor the late Horace (Hank) Cutler and his contributions in the field of natural products chemistry.

The symposium introduced recent discoveries and applications of natural products from insect, terrestrial plant, microbial, and synthetic sources for the management ofinsects, weeds, plant pathogenic microbes, and nematodes.

The symposium brought together scientists from academic, government, and private research laboratories around the world.

Discussed were natural products with insect repellent and attractant, insecticide, nematicide, herbicide, and fungicideactivities, and their current and potential future roles in pest management.

Also highlighted was the emission of volatile natural products from trees as a method to detect early stages of pathogen infection.

In addition to recent advances, the symposium included reviews of important natural products that have proven successful as commercial products as well as the significance of responsible product stewardship.

This compilation of current investigations, significant past discoveries, andpotential directions provides researchers - chemists, entomologists, ecologists, plant pathologists, weed scientists, nematologists, physiologists, and biochemists - with practical approaches for the use of naturalproducts for the management of agricultural and urban pests.

The purpose of this book is to further disseminate the wealth of knowledge presented at the 2012 ACS Natural Products for Pest Management Symposium to a more extensive audience.

Pest management issues cover a broad range of scientific disciplines.
