". . . perhaps the most practical offering to date--provides a highly comprehensive, eminently cogent, down-to-earth guide to field monitoring and pest management decision making." -- IPMnet News
"This is an excellent IPM textbook with great potential for in class use as well as a field reference for IPM professionals. The section on sampling is really good! The only thing missing is an in depth discussion of how thresholds are calculated. With this added it would provide the best bang for the buck of any IPM textbook on the market today. Great Job!!" --Anonymous
