Chapter synopsis: Plant feeding mites are major pests of agricultural crops and ornamentals. They disrupt physiological processes, change the physical appearance of the plant, and transmit diseases to crops. This chapter takes a holistic approach to integrated mite management by reviewing the basics of mite taxonomy and morphology and then studying key plant mite families focusing on major plant feeding mite pests as well as natural predators that regulate these mite populations. Finally, the chapter looks ahead to future research trends in this area and provides detailed guidance on further reading on the subject.
