Abstract

Development of a biological control program for invasive Phagmites australis australis in North America required 20 years of careful research, and consideration of management alternatives. A recent paper by Kiviat et al. (Biol Invasions 21:2529-2541, 2019) Articulates opposition to this biocontrol...

Abstract

Invasive Phragmites australis is widespread in North America and despite decades of management and large annual expenditures (>5 million US$) using physical and chemical means, local populations and the species range are expanding. Allowing continued expansion does not only threaten native...

Abstract

Despite their importance as invasive species, there has been a hesitation to target grasses in classical biocontrol. This historic bias appears to be changing with multiple active research and release programs. Similarly, biocontrol workers appear to avoid targeting species with native congeners....

Abstract

Introduced European genotypes of Phragmites australis are invasive and widespread in North America. Decades of management using herbicide and other means have failed to control the species and its range and populations continue to expand. Allowing continued invasion threatens native wetland biota...

Abstract

Rumex obtusifolius (Caryophyllales: Polygonaceae) is one of the most troublesome weeds in European grasslands and non-chemical control options are largely lacking. In this study, we assessed the potential of the native root-feeding specialist insect Pyropteron chrysidiforme (Lepidoptera: Sesiidae)...

AbstractFull Text

Broad-leaved dock (dock, Rumex obtusifolius) is among the most troublesome weeds in European grasslands and efficient non-chemical methods for its control are lacking. This study evaluated the ability of the native specialist insect Pyropteron chrysidiforme to attack dock using a mass release...

Abstract

Two mechanisms often linked with plant invasions are escape from enemies and hybridization. Classical biological control aims to reverse enemy escape and impose top-down population control. However, hybridization has the potential to alter interactions with enemies and thus affect biological...

CAB Review

In the context of possible biological control of Eurasian watermilfoil (Myriophyllum spicatum L.), available information is summarized on the distribution of M. spicatum and closely related species, and the known insect and pathogen natural enemies recorded from Eurasia. Research gaps identified...
