Control of Pests & Weeds by Natural Enemies:
An Introduction to Biological Control

Biological control - utilizing a population of natural enemies to seasonally or permanently suppress pests - is not a new concept. Use of carefully chosen natural enemies has become a major tool for the protection of natural ecosystems, biodiversity and agricultural and urban environments.

This book offers a multifaceted yet integrated discussion on two major applications of biological control: permanent control of invasive insects and plants at the landscape level and temporary suppression of both native and exotic pests in farms, tree plantations, and greenhouses. Written by leading international experts in the field, the text discusses control of invasive species and the role of natural enemies in pest management. >> Buy Now!
