This book synthesizes new information about the environmental advantages of plant resistance, transgenic resistance, the molecular bases of resistance, and the use of molecular markers to map resistance genes. Readers are presented in-depth descriptions of techniques to quantify resistance, factors affecting resistance expression, and the deployment of resistance genes. New information about gene-for-gene interactions between resistant plants and arthropod biotypes is discussed along with the recent examples of using arthropod resistant plants in integrated pest management systems.


C. Michael Smith has served in research; teaching and administrative positions at Louisiana State University, the University of Idaho and Kansas State University, where he is presently a Professor of Entomology. He has conducted research on arthropod resistance in forages, soybean, rice and wheat for over 30 years, and is currently studying constitutive and expressed genes involved in cereal resistance to aphids. In 2002, he served as a Fulbright Lecturer and Research Scholar at the Czech Agricultural University in Prague.
