Natural Pest Control Agents: A Symposium
Donald G. Crosby
Plants and animals produce many agents which can control life processes in insects or in other plants. Among them are attractants in insects, repellants in arthropods, insecticides in pyrethrum, in turnips, and in cruciferous crops, insect toxicants in crystalliferous bacteria, biologically active agents in fungi, antifungal factors in barley, virus inhititors and stimulators in plants, abscission-accelerating hormones in cotton fruit, and growth regulators in higher plants. Twelve papers survey the occurrence and chemistry of known agents, which represent the results of research that has screened only a small proportion of the world's species.
