Recent progress in the nomenclature and genetics of the hybrid-complex ‘lantana’ is summarized as it pertains to sourcing the best-adapted natural enemies for its biological control. Reasons are given for viewing the whole array of invasive taxa within Lantana L. sect. Camara Cham. (Verbenaceae) as a syngameon, and for surveying natural enemies of camaralike Lantana entities between Florida and Uruguay. To improve the degree of biological control of lantana, additional agents have been selected… CONTINUE READING
