Summary "This book deals with the appearance and management of plants with different traits occurring on arable land. It describes and discusses matters and relationships that are important as a basis for understanding the varying occurrence of weeds in different crops and cropping systems and, at the same time, the response of different weeds to specified management measures. This knowledge is particularly crucial in planning systems of weed management measures over long periods of time; in other words, in planning 'integrated weed management'." "The book will be of interest to teachers, postgraduate students and researchers in weed science, but will also prove useful to undergraduate students who specialize in this area and related subjects, such as agronomy, crop protection and plant ecology."--BOOK JACKET
