Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
This volume is a comprehensive treatment of how the principles of ecology and conservation biology can be used to maximize biological control. Conservation Biological Control presents various means to modify or manipulate the environment to enhance the activities of natural enemies of pests. It establishes a conceptual link between ecology and the agricultural use of agents for biological control, and discusses both  Read more...

Conservation Biological Control presents various means to modify or manipulate the environment to enhance the activities of natural enemies of pests. It establishes a conceptual link between ecology and the agricultural use of agents for biological control, and discusses both theoretical issues as well as practical management concerns. Certain to be interesting to ecologists and entomologists, this volume will also appeal to scientists, faculty, researchers and students interested in pest management, horticulture, plant sciences, and agriculture. Key Features * Contains chapters by an international team of leading authorities * Establishes a conceptual link between ecology and the agricultural use of agents for biological control * Discusses both theoretical issues as well as practical management concerns * Provides specific examples of how conservation principles are used to maximize the biological control of pests."@en ;
