Trophic and Guild Interactions in Biological Control
Edited by Jacques Brodeur and Guy Boivin
This volume explores modern concepts of trophic and guild interactions among natural
enemies in natural and agricultural ecosystems - a field that has become a hot topic in ecology and
biological control over the past decade. Internationally recognized scientists have combined their
expertise and passion to examine how species interactions between biological control agents, such as
competition, predation, parasitism, disease infection, mutualism, and omnivory affect arthropod population
dynamics and the outcome of biological control.
Hardcover 249 pp ISBN 9781402047664
The common approach is the use of ecological theory to better interpret the prevalence, nature and
outcome of trophic and guild interactions and, from a more applied perspective, to gain a comprehensive
understanding of how and when to use biological control.
Written for scientists and graduate students having an interest in biological control.
