About this book

Biological control of pest animals, weeds and diseases can be elegant, self-sustaining, non-polluting and cheap - when it works! As well as examining successful biological control programmes, this book analyses why the majority of attempts fail. It also deals with off-target and other negative effects of biological control.Chapters contributed by leading international researchers and practitioners in all areas of biological control afford the book a breadth of coverage and depth of analysis not possible with a single author volume. Combined with the use of other experts to review chapters and editorial oversight to ensure thematic integrity of the volume, this book provides the most authoritative analysis of biological control published. Key aspects addressed include how success may be measured, how successful biological control has been to date and how may it be made more successful in the future. With extensive use of contemporary examples, photographs, figures and tables this book will be invaluable to advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as being a 'must' for all involved in making biological control successful.
