Description: This book has been written keeping in mind to collect all information related to origin of ground beetle , their external anatomy , their metamorphosis, factor affecting on distribution of ground beetle in Agricultural ecosystem ,assemblages of ground beetle in transgenic crop round the world .Excellent description augmented with micrographs , make it more informative to the reader in chapter 1 The illustration on economic importance of different species of ground beetles included morphological description of 70 species of beetles along with role on management of crop pests . Among the different crop pests , the impact of these beetles on management of insect mites , fungus mollusks(Snail and Slug), spider and weed pests are described with exhaustive reference in chapter 2 . Various text books , papers thesis memoirs , and photographs are used to provide reasonable coverage of the subject as a whole. Effect of pesticides on population build up of ground beetle is incorporated along with factors affecting predation of ground beetle in agricultural ecosystem. Improved mass rearing techniques for ground beetle has been evolved as it is a prerequisite for modern pest management strategies in chapter -3 . The rearing technique section is not meant to be step by step method for rearing but is instead meant to incorporate predator rearing condition , preferred food of ground beetle , the effect of different factors in mortality of different stages( egg ,larva, pupa and adult) of ground beetle . The impact of GM led prey on polyphagous predator is also described in separate section. Last but not the least a comprehensive accounts on the list of ground beetles along with their prey record and worldwide distribution of some important genus of ground beetle are incorporated as the part of appendices which make the manuscript as guide book to researchers, students , teachers extension workers and progressive farmers who are looking for information on the diverse topics of biological control. Standard abbreviations and glossary of terms used in applied entomology and biological control are attached as last part of appendices. General bibliography of 575 papers reflects the citation of the paper to enrich the manuscript as a whole.
