The Epidemiology of Herbicide Resistance--Jodie Holt
Pages 7-8

The Chapter Skim interface presents what we've algorithmically identified as the most significant single chunk of text within every page in the chapter.

From page 7...
... For example, repeated mowing can select weeds with predominantly prostrate growth forms; perennial cropping systems (e.g., orchards) often select perennial weeds; and weed species typically shift from predominantly grass weeds to broadleaf (dicot)
From page 8...
... Resistance is not: o Restricted to herbicides; continuous use of any practice will select for best-adapted weeds resulting in evolution of resistant biotypes or succession to adapted species. Principles from biology that underpin resistance management include: o Increased selection pressure causes resistance to evolve.
