Ecological engineering is the process of manipulating farm habitats for the purposes of maintaining or increasing food production, restoring wetlands and other ecosystems, and conserving resources such as water and fertile soil. This book focuses on the pest management aspect of ecological engineering: how to make farmland more attractive for beneficial insects and less favorable for pests. This book brings together contributors from around the world who are leaders in habitat manipulation for the purpose of agriculture.Chapters explore the frontiers of ecological engineering: the authors describe methods including molecular approaches, high-tech marking, and remote sensing. They also review the theoretical aspects of ecological engineering and discuss how ecological engineering may interact with genetic engineering.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Chapters are well designed to provide the best available information on ecological engineering today and the book includes a detailed consideration of the possible positive and negative interactions with genetically engineered crops.... The sustainability of many farming systems is low and more guidance is required for farmers and advisors to develop and implement more ecologically sound pest management approaches. This book is, therefore, welcome and timely." -- Maurizio G. Paoletti, University of Padova * Journal of Sustainable Agriculture *
"Well written and illustrated..., this book will interest workers in agriculture, ecology, entomology, and pest management, along with academic audiences, county agents, farmers, and others interested in improving crop production." -- Choice, May 2005
