Control of Pests and Weeds by Natural Enemies free pdf This new textbook is an introduction to the theory and practice of biological control of pests and weeds in agricultural systems. The need for the use of classical biological control to help solve the problem of invasive species is included, as are new molecular techniques, biotype separation, and climate matching. The book is aimed at upper-level undergraduate and graduate classes in pest management, biological control, agricultural science, applied entomology, agroecology, and crop protection.

About Mark Hoddle

Roy Van Driesche , University of Massachusetts, is an expert in biological control in the Entomology Division of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. An earlier book on this topic by Van Driesche was published in 1996 as well as one on the invasive species problem. He is currently working to resolve the threat to eastern hemlock (a native forest tree) posed by an invasive Japanese adelgid. Mark Hoddle , University of California, Riverside, has written numerous articles and edited conference proceedings on biocontrol. He has recently successfully controlled the glassy wing sharpshooter in French Polynesia with introduced egg parasitoids. Ted Center , US Department of Agriculture, Agriculture Research Service, is a world leader in biological control of invasive plants, in particular against the world's worst water weed, waterhyacinth, and against melaleuca, an invasive Australian tree threatening the survival of the Florida Everglades, a World Heritage site.
