The publication entitled, “Plant Health Management for Food Security: Issues and Approaches” provides information on wide range of subject areas related to plant health management for food security. The major themes covered include frontier areas of research emphasizing use of behavior modifying chemicals, issues related to pesticide residues, applications of nanotechnology, modern tools of biotechnology for host plant resistance etc. Pest management issues covering shifts in pest scenario, pest diagnostics and certification issues, pest forecasting and modeling, novel disinfestation technology against insect pests and biosecurity policies in trade and exchange of germplasm are very well discussed. Emerging biotic stresses such as plant parasitic nematodes, role of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) as eco-friendly alternative in disease suppression, geographical information system for managing plant genetic resources etc. are some other important topics covered in the book.
