The genus Chrysoperla contains several important predatory biological control agents that can be used in augmentation programmes. Because they are generalist predators, they can be used in a wide variety of agricultural situations. There is significant potential for commercialization of Chrysoperla ...

The many patterns and hypothesized mechanisms that have been reported in studies of the parasitoid assemblages of phytophagous insects are reviewed. Most of these mechanisms involve differences in the responses of specialist and generalist parasitoids to the biology and ecology of the host species. ...

Of more than 570 entomophagous birds in China, about 30 species are of importance for pest control in agriculture and forestry. Their use for controlling pests in rice fields, forests and grasslands is reviewed. A brief summary of the history of using birds for pest control in ancient China is also ...

This review describes the taxonomy, botanical features and distribution of I. cylindrica. The potential for utilising I. cylindrica is considered, but emphasis is placed on its success as a weed and the necessity and problems of control. Methods of control are discussed in relation to constraints...
