Establishment of Arytainilla spartiophila Förster (Hemiptera: Psyllidae), a new biological control agent for broom, Cytisus scoparius, in New Zealand
Results of tests conducted with the psyllid Arytainilla spartiophila before it was introduced into New Zealand for biological control of broom, Cytisus scoparius (L.) Link, indicate that it is highlyExpand
Supplemental host range of Araujia mosaic virus, a potential biological control agent of moth plant in New Zealand
Araujia mosaic virus (ArjMV) has previously been confirmed to have a narrow host range and is considered a potential biological control agent for moth plant (Araujia hortorum), a troublesomeExpand
Why the New Zealand regulatory system for introducing new biological control agents works.
For the past 12 years, New Zealand has operated the most comprehensive and internationally admired regime for regulating the introduction of new organisms. Using this system, which is based on theExpand
