How can biological control reply to the expectations of an agriculture increasingly anxious to protect the environment and the biodiversity? What applications can it offer a society set on achieving "zero residues" of active substances in foodstuffs? This book takes stock of this specialist and complex scientific subject now become a social topic.
An initial inventory lists the vocabulary, basic biological knowledge and basic principles of biological control. Each chapter is supplemented by one or two articles written by specialists in the field addressed: beneficials, micro-organisms, parasites and parasitoids, plants, aquatic environments, complex systems, inert biocides, etc. Evaluation, changes and possible improvements in biological control methods conclude this pioneering summary work.
It is intended for teachers, instructors and students as well as "lay" readers who are conscious of the need to protect ecosystems.
