This book gives a thorough grounding in the biological control of arthropods, vertebrates, weeds and plant pathogens using natural enemies. It explores the reasons for using biological control, the major strategies for the use of natural enemies, and how biological control can be integrated with other types of pest management. It addresses the issues of safety and non-target effects, the ecological relationships that make control by natural enemies possible are emphasised.
'... a nicely written and illustrated book on biological control ...' Journal of Insect Conservation 'It is a book that is designed to take the reader through the value, uses and approaches to biological control, emphasising each point with clearly described examples. And this it does very well indeed.' Leonard G. Copping, Pest Management Science 'The strength of the text, in my opinion, lies in the enthusiasm for the organisms, especially the entomophagous fungi with which Hajek is so familiar.' Ecology
