Abstract

This chapter discusses the benefits and risks of applying living organisms (e.g. arthropods, bacteria, fungi) or viruses to control arthropod pests, weeds and plant diseases. As for other pest control measures, the benefits that can be created by biological control should be weighed against...

Abstract

This chapter documents the biological control efforts (targeted at arthropods, weeds and microorganisms) in the Eurasian region, highlighting a number of cases of successes and failures. It is indicated that despite a long history of importation biological control, the regulatory framework of the...

Abstract

Recent frequent and surprisingly rapid accidental natural enemy introductions call into question the regulatory emphasis on a rigorous and protracted process for approving importation biological control introductions, when adventives (unintended introductions, not infrequently the same species of...

Abstract

A classical biological control agent is an exotic host-specific natural enemy, which is intentionally introduced to obtain long-term control of an alien invasive species. Among the arthropods considered for this role, eriophyid mites are likely to possess the main attributes required: host...

Abstract

Flowering rush (Butomus umbellatus) is an invasive aquatic plant in northern USA and southern Canada. To better understand the pattern of invasion in North America and implications for management, we investigated genetic diversity and population structure of the more recent western North American...

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...
