This volume is a comprehensive treatment showing how the principles of ecology and conservation biology can be used to maximise biological control. It 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. It also provides specific examples of how conservation principles are used to maximise the biological control of pests. The suggested alternative approach to biological-based management of invasive species is of value in terms of its ecological justification and sustainability.
