Abstract

Rice (Oryza sativa L.) is the staple food for millions of people in Asia and the world; however, it is also the largest consumer of freshwater resources worldwide. More than 75% of the world's rice is grown under flooded conditions. However, the long-term sustainability of this flooded system is...

Abstract

Recent reviews show that classical weed biocontrol measures can be successful in reducing the negative impacts of invasive plant species, have impressive returns on investment, and contribute to slower rates of weed spread. Quantitative post-release monitoring is necessary to account for...

Abstract

Impatiens glandulifera, or Himalayan balsam, is a prolific invader of riverine habitats . Introduced from the Himalayas for ornamental purposes in 1839, this annual species has naturalised across Great Britain (GB) forming dense monocultures with negative affects across whole ecosystems. In 2006 a...

Abstract

This chapter discusses biological control successes and failures in the North American region, including Canada, Greenland, the continental USA, Mexico and Bermuda. In contrast to the long history of biological control introductions into North America, the region has played a relatively minor role...
