Editorial Reviews


"...the editors somehow managed to squeeze out the best of each contributor. Each and every chapter is well written, well referenced and timely." Ecology

"The editors and authors should be commended for this book. If readers are looking for an exhaustive source reviewing all aspects of biological control presenting a state of the science, I would recommend the [Handbook of Biological Control] edited by Bellows and van Driesche, also published in 1999. If however, readers are looking for arguments as to where biological control should be going, I think this book will be an excellent starting point for the discussion. If you are rich buy both. But if you have to choose, buy this one." Bulletin of the Entomological Society of Canada

Book Description

Biological control is the suppression of pest populations with predators, parasitoids and pathogens. Historically, biological control has failed more often than it has succeeded, largely because its scientific basis has been poorly understood. This book synthesises recent theoretical developments and provides a balanced guide to the issues that need to be considered in applying theory to biological control. It will be a stimulating source book for all those interested in pest management, theoretical ecology and population biology.
