About this book


The authors of this book report up-to-date methodologies relating to isolation, identification and use of various enzymes and receptor systems that serve as targets for insecticide action or as sites for resistance development. Thus, this book serves as an indispensable tool for scientists in academia and industry research, investigating or developing new insecticides with selective properties for the benefit of the environment. Possible countermeasures for resistance to novel insecticides are discussed.
