In Chapter One, André L. de A. Melo, PhD discusses the spore-forming bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis and its uses as a bio-insecticide, also touching on ways to combat insect resistance. In Chapter Two, Karim Ennouri proposes the bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis as an important biopesticide because of the entomopathogenic effect of delta-endtoxins as well as its efficiency against insects resistant to chemical insecticides. In conclusion, Rafael C. Lajmanovich, Candela S. Martinuzzi, Carlina Colussi, Paola M. Peltzer, Agustín Bassó, Andrés M. Attademo, and Lucila M. Curi present a study exploring the impact of a GM Bt-soybean-based diet, as opposed to a lettuce diet, on tadpoles. (Imprint: Nova)
