This book attempts to bring together a broad array of molecular techniques and approaches currently used in insect pathology. It is divided into four parts: (i) identification and diagnostics; (ii) evolutionary relationships and genetics; (iii) host-pathogen interactions; and (iv) genomics and genetic engineering. Sixteen chapters have been written by leading researchers in the field which provide comprehensive and up-to-date information on each part.

In the section of entomopathogenic fungi, most of the techniques about agrobacterium tumefaciens transformation, high through-put extracting fungal DNA and cloning T-DNA flanking sequences were developed by another scientist. But the scientist's contributions to these parts were not mentioned. I think this book's citation was not seriously considered, the reliability of information provided by this book is therefore highly suspected!!!!!
