Insect Pest Resistance in Plants

Nature volume 155, page 43 (13 January 1945) | Download Citation



THE Imperial Bureau of Plant Breeding and Genetics, Cambridge, has issued a Bibliography on Insect Pest Resistance in Plants (1s. 6d.). The sources drawn upon include publications from the British Commonwealth, the main European countries, the United States and various South American countries, the U.S.S.R. and Japan. In all, there are more than 550 references arranged according to subject, the chief of these being cereals, roots and tubers, cotton, sugar-cane, fruits and vegetables. Nematodes are dealt with in a special section. Many of the publications included have been abstracted in Plant Breeding Abstracts, and in many instances the original publications cited are available at the Bureau or in some co-operating library, and further information can therefore, if necessary, be obtained on application to the Bureau. It is believed that the bibliography will be of practical assistance not only to the breeder and the geneticist, but also to all who are interested in the solution of the important problem of the fundamental basis of insect or nematode resistance among crop plants.
