Insectes et acariens des cultures maraîchères en milieu tropical humide

Insects and spidermites affecting vegetable crops in tropical humid regions

Identification, bio-ecology and agro-ecological management


P. Ryckewaert, B. Rhino

Edition 2017

Insects and spidermites do significant damage to vegetable crops in all tropical regions around the world. Today, agro-ecological crop protection methods such as biological control are recommended. This work, a veritable handbook, features 22 references describing the major groups of arthropods: pests and natural enemies (predators and parasitoids). The bio-ecology of these groups and the means at our disposal to control pests are detailed along with many photographs.

Wild Animals, Biodiversity and Health - What are the Challenges?

Wild Animals, Biodiversity and Health - What are the Challenges?


S. Morand, C. Richomme, F. Moutou

Edition 2014

The current environmental crisis is accompanied by a crisis of the biodiversity and an epidemiological crisis marked by the emergence of new infectious diseases coming from wild and domestic animals. Could there be links between biodiversity and transmission of pathogens? Do biodiversity losses increase infectious health risks? Conversely, are wild animals and the biodiversity in the broadest sense influenced by the use of antibiotics? Are the services rendered by the ecosystems - pollination by bees, for example, - threatened by pesticides? Have wild animals become, reluctantly, a sentinel for the healthiness of our environment?
