CHAPTER 30 – Enhancement of Biological Control in Annual Agricultural Environments
The interactions of biological control with other control methods, mainly cultural practices, host–plant resistance, and chemical insecticides are described. Expand
Mexican Bean Beetle (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae) Larval Parasite Pediobius foveolatus (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae) from Japan: Field Release in the United States
A Japanese race of the parasite Pediobius foveolatus, with its origin in Okayama Prefecture, Honshu, was released in 1980 against the Mexican bean beetle, but there was no evidence of successful parasite overwintering. Expand
Factors Limiting Success of Introduced Natural Enemies
Since the initial success against the cottony-cushion scale in California, by 1976 approximately 128 species of pest insects and weeds in many parts of the world have been completely or substantiallyExpand
Sampling Methods in Soybean Entomology
New developments in methodology are reported, sources of groups who have dealt with and solved particular entomological problems are revealed, and experiments which might be applicable for use in biology laboratory courses are described. Expand
Sampling Parasitoids of Soybean Insect Pests
Samples of hosts are taken in the field and either dissected or reared in the laboratory to determine the species of parasitoids present and the percentage of hosts parasitized by each species. Expand
Reproductive Strategies of Parasitoids
Reaumur (1738) was perhaps the first biologist to express wonder at the great diversity of fecundities seen among insects, and knowledge of the selective factors acting on egg production and the results of natural selection are necessary for a full understanding of the coevolution of host and parasitoid, host and Parasitoid population dynamics, parasite ecology, and for the development of a predictive science in biological control using introduced parasitoids.
