Classical Biological Control of Bemisia tabaci in the United States - A Review of Interagency Research and Implementation
Edited by Gould, Juli; Hoelmer, Kim; Goolsby, John
Vol. 4 in the series Progress in Biological Control
Hardcover 343 pp ISBN 9781402067396
This book reviews the interagency research and development effort on classical biological control in the
USA from 1992-2002. The successful exploration, importation, screening, evaluation, rearing, and
establishment of at least five exotic Bemisia. tabaci natural enemies in rapid response to the
devastating infestations in the USA is a landmark in interagency cooperation and coordination of multiple
disciplines. In this volume, the various authors present detailed reviews of natural enemy exploration, introduction,
and evaluation efforts that will serve as a guide to support and encourage classical biological control inputs into
other integrated pest management systems.
Of interest to agricultural research scientists, extension specialists, biological control and pest management practitioners,
Federal and State regulatory agencies in the United States and abroad
