IPMnet NEWS September 2001, Issue no. 93 ISSN: 1523-7893 Š Copyright 2005 IPM NEWS --- international IPM news and programs I. IPM NEWS / APPLICATIONS international IPM news and programs Parasitic Plant Scientists Organize Some of the world's smallest seeds belong to parasitic plants that are notorious for the immense problems they cause agriculture in less developed zones. L.J. Musselman, a noted international parasitic plant authority, cites two of the worst offenders, the root parasitic genera Striga and Orobanche; the former is estimated to infest and diminish 73 million ha (180 million a.) of cereal and legume production in sub-Saharan Africa, and the latter attacks crop plants throughout the Mediterranean, the Middle East, and beyond. For many years a dedicated, loosely informal core of scientists has focused on control management of parasitic weeds. Now, in light of parasitic weeds' increasing global importance, that group has taken a further step and this year organized into the International Parasitic Plant Society (IPPS). The Society will promote the study and understanding of parasitic plants, with an ultimate goal of defining more effective means of limiting their devastating impact. IPPS is specifically created to exchange, disseminate, and publish information about parasitic plants. The Society also sponsored the recent 7th International Parasitic Weed Symposium, held in France, and has assumed support for the long-running newsletter HAUSTORIUM which offers both electronic and hard-copy versions. IPPS welcomes all interested parties to visit the Society's website and to consider joining with colleagues in combatting parasitic weeds worldwide. *> J.A.C.

Aid for Treating Disease in Lentil Two Canadian scientists have developed a set of guidelines for identifying situations where fungicide application in Lens culinaris Medic. (lentil) is most cost-effective. Growers can use these guidelines by comparing field values against tables that have been devised using predetermined numbers based on a series of risk factors: plant stand, moisture conditions, future predicted weather, and disease development stage. The result is a cumulative total risk figure which, when matched against a threshold value, suggests whether or not applying a fungicide will be monetarily worthwhile. The text version, complete with risk tables, can be found on the web at:

ALL ABOUT LACEWINGS The first volume in 17 years to seriously examine both the biology and role in crop protection of the Chrysopidae, LACEWINGS IN THE CROP ENVIRONMENT, assembles a mass of information hitherto scattered in the primary literature. Editors P.K. McEwen, et al, drew on input from 43 international authorities to coherently examine in detail lacewings' service as an important biocontrol agent. The 2001 volume is divided into five sections (30 chapters) that cover systematics and ecology, the principles of using lacewings in crops, actual case studies, and future prospects. The hardbound, 560-page work includes numerous black/white illustrations and serves as a unique reference. *> Cambridge Univ. Press, Edinburgh Bldg., Shaftesbury Rd., Cambridge CB2 2RU, UK.

TOXIC PLANT TOUR DE FORCE A massive, new, 1,342-page hardbound reference, TOXIC PLANTS OF NORTH AMERICA, is said to provide the most extensive and detailed reference currently available for the subject. The 2001 work covers more than 60 families and hundreds of species of both wild and planted toxic plants found on the American continent north of the Tropic of Cancer. Authors G.E. Burrows and R.J. Tyrl survey animal and


human intoxications and provide information for plant morphology, distribution, clinical signs and pathologic shifts in toxicity, and treatment. Each reader-friendly entry includes a text accompanied by keywords, line drawings, maps, nomenclature, and a reference list. Many common weeds are conspicuous by their inclusion. A section explains how to identify toxic plants; another lists plant taxa by their principal adverse effects. There is even a list of "plants of concern for dogs, cats, and other pets." *> Iowa State Univ. Press, 2121 S. State St., Ames, IA 50014-8300, USA. E-mail: Woo@isupress.com. Fax: 1-515-292-3348.

IMMENSE NEW ENTOMOLOGY REFERENCE A fully cross-referenced collection of 28,000 terms, names, and phrases used in entomology, incorporating an estimated 43,000 definitions, has been amassed by G. Gordh and D.H. Headrick and published in 2001 as A DICTIONARY OF ENTOMOLOGY. Listings cover insect anatomy, behavior, biology, ecology, histology, molecular biology, morphology, pest management, taxonomy, and systematics, and, of course, full nomenclature and classification. The 1056-page tome provides the origin, etymology, part of speech, and definition of each included term or phrase. Where meanings have changed, or terms have been borrowed from other disciplines, the impressive hardbound volume indicates the most current usage. The text incorporates a global listing of deceased entomologists, or scientists from other fields who contributed to entomology, with the citation for their biography (or obituary). *> CABI Publishing, Wallingford, Oxon OX10 8DE, UK.

MANAGING WEEDS IN THE TROPICS Burgeoning weeds in the world's humid and sub-humid tropic zones frequently constrain crop production, thwart pasture establishment, and impede water-body maintenance. A 2001 work, WEED MANAGEMENT IN THE HUMID AND SUB-HUMID TROPICS, addresses these problems through review of weed biology and discussion of effective management techniques. Long-time weed scientist P.J. van Rijn, and two guest authors, first consider principles of weed ecology, then individually examine weed management specifics for each of nearly 30 main crops grown in the tropics. The softbound, 242-page publication offers a short but informative full color section, as well as a long reference list and several useful appendices. *> KIT Publishers, PO Box 95001, 1090 HA Amsterdam, THE NETHERLANDS.

SUGARCANE DISEASES REVIEWED Sugarcane, an important cash crop in many tropical/sub-tropical regions, is affected by a range of diseases caused by fungi, bacteria, and phytoplasma. A 2001 publication, SUGARCANE PATHOLOGY: VOL. II, VIRUS AND PHYTOPLASMA DISEASES, offers a contemporary overview of the topic. Editors G.P. Rao, et al, drew upon an international group of sugarcane pathologists in compiling this hardbound work. Its 377 pages contain eight sections addressing: diagnosis, taxonomy, transmission, new diseases, purification, characterization, host-pathogen interactions, and management. Each of the 16 chapters provides a reference list. *> Science Publishers, POB 699, Enfield, NH 03748, USA. E-mail: sales@scipub.net. Fax: 1-603-632-5611. Phone: 1-603-632-7377.

PUBLICATION & CD NOTES PROGRAM SUMMARIZES RESEARCH RESULTS An updated version of Agricultural Research Manager (ARM), ARM 6.1.8., a software program for establishing, managing, and summarizing herbicide, insecticide, fungicide, nematicide, and other non-chemical research trials, has been released. The full program, offered on CD-ROM, uses 32-bit technology and runs on Windows-based computers, and is said not to require extensive computer experience to operate. ARM is most beneficial when used for field and


green/glasshouse research, and is designed to manage and summarize for a single-trial basis. An add-on program for summarizing across multiple trials is also available as is a data collector program. The supporting documentation is clear and detailed. Free demonstration software can be requested. *> Gylling Data Management, Inc., 405 Martin Blvd., Brookings, SD 57006-4605, USA.

Unrelenting discovery of new pests, reports of ravaged crops and economic loss, chemicals mis-used, products withdrawn, bickering, charges, costs, and grim problems, however, can make IPM folks want to forget it all. That's not realistic, obviously, but a brief glance at the lighter side is advised for temporary respite. Introducing "Pest Management Lite," an occasional non-academic, non-scientific, non-sense section. .................. When field, lab, or classroom work-a-day pressures become onerous, and the future turns bleak, shake off those nasty research and development blues by merely pointing your Web browser to the inspired, heartwarming site of THE NEMATODE SONGBOOK and quickly shed your gloom mgd.nacse.org/hyperSQL/squiggles/songs.html. Because here, neatly packaged in one compact page, you'll find many of your old favorites, but now all enhanced with a new worm's eye view. Who, for example, will be able to forget the stirring sentiments of the "Nematode Marching Song," or not be touched by the heartfelt emotions of "The Autumn Worms"? Just one verse of "The Happy Nematologist," or "Good King Nematode" is bound to be a thoroughly uplifting and nerve-tingling experience. Sing these inspired lyrics to your astonished co-workers, or organize a sing-a-long with close friends and weird lab mates. You'll enjoy, no matter the reaction of listeners or those devoid of nematological notes appreciation. THE NEMATODE SONGBOOK (not copyright, and utterly unprotected for good reason) awaits your pleasure.

U.S. REGIONAL PM CENTERS news, developments The U.S. Dept. of Agriculture has established a network of four federally funded Regional Pest Management Centers (PMCs) to be "the focal point for team building efforts, communication networks, and stakeholder participation" in each region. The concept is based on the importance of strengthening links between production agriculture, research and extension programs, and others involved with agriculture. Each of the four new PMCs will focus on a Western, Northcentral, Northeastern, or Southern region. The PMCs lauch process began in late 2000. Several of the Centers promptly began operations (typically creating a website) whereas others, for various reasons, are still in earlier operative stages. While each PMC either has, or soon will have, an active information dissemination program,


IPMnet has been engaged to help support, amplify, and enhance the four individual efforts. Hence, this new section which will appear in IPMnet NEWS periodically. Beyon the four regional centers, there are numerous other IPM and pest management centers or programs in the U.S. organized at a university, or in conjunction with a specific state government, that have been operating for some time. Several are extremely active and well known, both nationally and internationally. These programs are anticipated to eventually, in various ways, link with the new regional PMCs. *> D.
