This textbook examines weed behaviour and management in relation to ecological concepts and agronomic practices. Introductory chapters examine weed taxonomy and evaluation and the fundamentals of mixed crop community ecology, populations biology, germination and dormancy. Subsequent sections discuss the allelopathic and competitive influences of weeds in cropping . Get this from a library! Weed-crop ecology: principles in weed management. [R J Aldrich] -- Considers weed behaviour and management in the context of ecology and agricultural management. Treats weeds taxonomy and evolution, crop ecology and the role of weed in allelopathy. Discusses the. Abstract The chapter on weed ecology explores the importance of ecological relationships to weed management systems. It examines the components of the weed–crop ecosystem and weed–environment interactions. It also discusses the role of fundamental ecological concepts in weed management. It is estimated that those problems cause $ billions worth of crop losses annually and the global cost of controlling weeds also runs into many $ billions every year.

In addition it looks at current weed management strategies and how they will be affected by global climate change. The book covers an increasingly important area in plant science, crop science and ecological research, and will be essential reading for anyone exploring the biological impacts of a changing environment. The evolution of herbicide resistance, understanding its mechanisms, characterisation of resistant weed biotypes, development of herbicide-tolerant crops and management of resistant weeds are described throughout the 36 chapters of this book.
