Biodiversity relevant to pest management of tropical irrigated rice pests is discussed in terms of variation within rice plants, rice fields, groups of rice fields and rice associated ecosystems. It is concluded that, in the unique cropping conditions and stable water supply of tropical irrigated rice, the manipulation of a relatively few manageable components of diversity can confer stability such that pests are mostly kept at levels which do not justify the use of insecticides. Durable rice…

Arthropod biodiversity and conservation biological control in rice
TLDR
There is a plethora of natural enemies in rice ecosystem and conservation biological control plays a major role in reducing pests.
Biodiversity associated with an irrigated rice agro-ecosystem in Sri Lanka
TLDR
The fauna and flora recorded from the rice field were observed to follow a uniform pattern of seasonal colonization and succession during successive rice cultivation cycles, and the integrated efforts of these two groups can result in the formulation of strategies based on biodiversity as an organizing principal in the sustainable management of the Rice field agro-ecosystem.
Polycultural manipulation for better regulation of planthopper populations in irrigated rice-based ecosystems
TLDR
It is indicated that soybean and corn intercrops do not greatly enhance the ability of natural enemies to suppress planthoppers and this strategy may be useful as part of an integrated pest management strategy for the sustainable rice production.
Impact of Insecticide Applications on Arthropod Predators and Plant Feeders in Cambodian Rice Fields
TLDR
The results showed that rice fields without insecticides application did not suffer significant damage by insect pests or by diseases and had similar yields to those treated with insecticide application in two provinces.
15 Integrated Pest Management of Rice : Ecological Concepts
Rice is one of the oldest domesticated crops and due to its importance as a food crop humans took it with them when settling in new areas further removed from flooded river plains extending to the
A review of principles for sustainable pest management in rice
TLDR
This review addresses four principles on which sustainable pest management in rice is to be grounded, and shows that the considered framework – Human - Pest - Environment - Crop – applies, with each of its summits having a different bearing depending on the pest considered.
ABUNDANCE OF ARTHROPOD INSECT PESTS AND NATURAL ENEMIES IN RICE FIELD AS INFLUENCED BY RICE GROWTH STAGES AND NEIGHBORING CROPS
Studies were conducted to record the abundance of arthropod insect pests and natural enemies in rice fields as influenced by rice growth stages and neighboring crops at the experimental farm of
Biodiversity and Dynamics of Planthoppers and Their Natural Enemies in Rice Fields with Different Nitrogen Regimes
TLDR
The results indicated that the rapid growth in populations of planthopper due to excessive nitrogen might be attributed to the combination of reduction in control capacity of natural enemies and strong simulation of nitrogen to planthoppers.
Predator–prey interactions in rice ecosystems: effects of guild composition, trophic relationships, and land use changes — a model study exemplified for Philippine rice terraces
TLDR
A model study investigates the effect of land use changes on arthropods in Philippine rice terraces and finds a high proportion of vegetable fields reduces pest abundance, depending on the interactions between their natural enemies.

PEST MANAGEMENT IN RICE
TLDR
This article intends to bridge gaps such as the one between theory and practice in rice-pest management, as well as theOne between temperate and tropical areas in terms of accumulated data, byerning a few selected groups of rice pests.
Ecological, agricultural, genetic, and commercial considerations in the deployment of insect-resistant germplasm
TLDR
Whether some modalities of resistance are inherently more stable than others regarding selection of virulent biotypes is examined, and whether in judging the inherent durability of a particular resistance, exclusive focus on the genetic nature of the plant resistance is inadequate is argued.
Rice Insects: Management Strategies
TLDR
This book brings together contributions from the fields of entomology, agronomy, population ecology and biostatistics to provide a comprehensive survey of rice-insect interaction to be a useful reference for researchers and practitioners.
A food web approach to evaluating the effect of insecticide spraying on insect pest population dynamics in a Philippine irrigated rice ecosystem
TLDR
The methods developed here for studying the impact of spraying on the organization of arthropod communities in rice fields could be applied to other interventions and Classical models that contain one or two species as independent variables may not be sufficient to forecast future abundances of some Philippine rice pests.
Ecology of the brown planthopper in the tropics.
Evidence to date suggests that the change to modern rice cultural practices was the major factor causing the upsurge in the density of, and damage by, the brown planthopper (BPH) Nilaparvata lugens
Trends and strategies for rice insect problems in tropical Asia
TLDR
Rice insect pests in the tropics are likely to become more intense, and the change in rice plant type could bring about a shift in relative status of different pest species.
Impact of Parasites, Predators, and Diseases on Rice Pests
TLDR
The role of natural enemies as a cause of population fluctuations of such pests has received much attention during the past fifty years, and many accounts are found in the literature relating either to fragmented records of their natu­ ral enemies or detailed ecological and 'biological studies of some certain parasites and predators.
The biodiversity of microorganisms and invertebrates: its role in sustainable agriculture.
TLDR
This book addresses a number of key issues of biodiversity in sustaining soil productivity; the importance of biodiversity to pest occurrence and management; and biotechnology and biodiversity among invertebrates and micro-organisms.
