Natural enemies have long been used in biological control programs to mitigate the damage caused by herbivory. Many herbivorous insect species also act as plant virus vectors, enabling virus transmission from plant to plant and hence disease development in a plant population. Whilst an intuitive assumption would be to expect a decrease in vector numbers to(More)
The Scientific Committee (SC) developed an opinion addressing the issue of statistical significance and biological relevance. The objective of the document is to help EFSA Scientific Panels and Committee in the assessment of biologically relevant effects. The SC considered the distinction between the concepts of biological relevance and statistical(More)
The present opinion has the format of a risk profile and presents potential biological and chemical hazards as well as allergenicity and environmental hazards associated with farmed insects used as food and feed taking into account of the entire chain, from farming to the final product. The opinion also addresses the occurrence of these hazards in(More)

The last theme was also the topic of a major international workshop on Climate Change, held in Évora during the previous week, and papers based on the presentations made have been included. This issue continues the practice of devoting Special Issues of the journal to major themes in Plant Pathology arising from presentations made at major international(More)
Developing and implementing alternatives to the ‘pesticide only’ approach requires improvements in current pest control methods (using Decision Support Systems, longer rotations, more robust cultivars, mixed crops, crop management...), but also the generation of new knowledge that can be put to use in integrated and innovative crop production systems.(More)
