About this book

Biological control has been central to many recent successful integrated pest management programmes. It is also the natural choice where protection of the environment is particularly important. This book reviews knowledge of biocontrol programmes in the tropics, particularly in developing countries. It is based on papers presented at a symposium held in Malaysia in March 1999. Contributors include authorities from Europe, North America and Australia, as well as from South-East Asia.

"Contains some 40 contributions addressing biological and biologically-based technologies useful to integrated pest management (IPM) in the tropics. Articles address biological control of arthropod pests; advances in biological control of arthropod pests in tropical crops; biological control of weeds; the management of plant pathogens; biological control of vertebrates and molluscs; and biologically-based technologies in support of classical biological control. Twelve poster papers conclude the volume."--SciTech Book News


Biological control of arthropod pests; biological control of weeds; managing plant pathogens; prospects and challenges of biological control of vertebrates; biological control of molluscs; biologically-based technologies in support of classical biological control. (Part contents).
