Description of The Toxicology and Biochemistry of Insecticides 2nd Edition

The Toxicology Biochemistry of Insecticides 2nd Edition by Simon J. Yu is a great Insecticides book, for study. It has been six years since the first edition of Toxicology and Biochemistry of Insecticides book was published. During this period, numerous new discoveries have been made in the field of insecticide toxicology, which justify inclusion in this book. Furthermore, many colleagues have used the first edition as a textbook for teaching insecticide toxicology. They have also given me some valuable suggestions to improve the book. In this new edition, I have retained the original format, but each chapter has been revised and updated, some quite extensively. In response to the reviewer’s comments on the first edition, new references are added to each chapter for further reading. The following are some of the new features.

I hope this new edition will be useful to students of entomology, plant medicine, pest management, and other disciplines related to agriculture. I also hope that this book will be used as a textbook for teaching insecticide toxicology to graduate students. I wish to thank my editor, John Sulzycki, and project coordinator, Jill Jurgensen, for their valuable assistance. Finally, I thank my wife, Rachel, for her continued support and patience during this revision.
