Evaluation des consequences positives et negatives de la lutte biologique contre les insectes. Presentation des nouvelles orientations dans la lutte, permettant de reduire les impacts negatifs 
CONTROL BIOLÓGICO POR AUMENTO EN MOSCAS DE LA FRUTA (DIPTERA: TEPHRITIDAE)
TLDR
The increased preoccupation of the international community for the environmental pollution, the loss of the biodiversity and the gradual deterioration of the flora and fauna in the region is focused on. Expand
TRAITS UNDERLYING INVASIVENESS: A COMPARISON OF WIDESPREAD AND ENDEMIC SPECIES IN THE GENUS GAMBUSIA (POECILIIDAE)
TLDR
This paper aims to demonstrate the efforts towards in-situ applicability of EMMARM, which aims to provide real-time information about concrete mechanical properties such as E-modulus and compressive strength to describe the response of the immune system to shocks. Expand
Ecological Effects of an Insect Introduced for the Biological Control of Weeds
TLDR
The weevil Rhinocyllus conicus Froeh, introduced to control exotic thistles, has exhibited an increase in host range as well as continuing geographic expansion and significantly reduced the seed production of native thistle flowerheads. Expand
The unpredicted host use of Chamaecytisus profiler by the introduced weed biocontrol agent, Bruchidius villosus: a retrospective analysis and explanation
TLDR
The Unpredicted Host Use of Chamaecytisus prolifer by the Introduced Weed Biocontrol Agent, Bruchidius villosus: a Retrospective Analysis is presented. Expand
The Impact of Nontarget Concerns on the Practice of Biological Control
The recent entomological literature contains a spate of articles and volumes concerning the impact of biological control agents on nontarget species. These range from thoughtful (Louda et al. 1997)Expand
Biocontrol-risky but necessary?
TLDR
Here, it is attempted to put arguments for and against biocontrol into context, and suggest some directions for future research that might help to resolve some of the problems. Expand
Food Webs as a Tool for Studying Nontarget Effects in Biological Control
TLDR
Biological control practitioners are under growing pressure from both science and society to improve upon their predictions of safety and effectiveness of control-organism introductions. Expand
Vegetative growth response of black cherry (Prunus serotina) to different mechanical control methods in a biosphere reserve.
TLDR
The aim was to control the success of felling the species and to test other mechanical control methods such as girdling and snapping the trees with regard to their efficiency by quantifying the species’ growth reactions. Expand
EVALUATING NONTARGET EFFECTS OF CLASSICAL BIOLOGICAL CONTROL: FRUIT FLY PARASITOIDS IN HAWAII AS A CASE STUDY
TLDR
The anticipated outcome of a biological control introduction is the establishment of a new balance with both the pests and natural enemies coexisting at low densities. Expand
Intraguild predation of the aphid pathogenic fungus Pandora neoaphidis by the invasive coccinellid Harmonia axyridis
Abstract 1. The ladybird Harmonia axyridis is an invasive alien species in many countries and is predicted to have a negative impact on native biodiversity. However, little is known on the status ofExpand
