Summary

This book covers various aspects of information on bio-ecology, temporal and spatial distribution, key mortality factors, population dynamics and early warning system, host plant resistance, mechanism and inheritance of resistance, introgression of resistance genes from closely related wild relatives of crops, transgenics, molecular marker-assisted selection, bio-control agents including natural enemies and biopesticides, natural plant products, chemical control and insecticide resistance management, and integrated management of Heliothis/Helicoverpa.
