About this book

Based on a symposium held at the XX International Congress of Entomology, Florence, August 1996.

This book in ESA's Proceedings series discusses how international travel and commerce have contributed to a greater rate of introduction of non-native pest species. Reuniting these pests with their natural enemies is seen by some as natural and safe pest control. But is it? This book explores both sides of this important debate. The authors use their differences and commonalities to try to develop mutually acceptable compromises, or at the very least, discern the least damaging alternatives.
