It includes original papers on basic and applied research in all aspects of biological control of invertebrate, vertebrate and weed pests, and plant diseases. Subject areas covered in BioControl comprise biology and ecology of organisms for biological control, and various facets of their use including any biological means of control for integrated pest management (IPM) such as plant resistance, pheromones and intercropping.

Quality Control and Production of Biological Control Agents: Theory and Testing Procedures

Quality Control and Production of Biological Control Agents: Theory and Testing Procedures.
J.C. van Lenteren (ed.), 2004. 327 pp.
This book was written by many IOBC members and is the result of work done in global and wprs working groups on quality control of natural enemies. The use of biological control agents has been increasing worldwide and there are now many companies massproducing such organisms, particularly for the control of insect pests. However, there is a great need for quality control in the production and use of these natural enemies, which include insect parasitoids and predators, fungi and viruses. This book has been written by leading scientists to provide both background theory and practical guidance on this subject.
ISBN 0 85199 688 4, US $ 120.00, www.cabi-publishing.org/bookshop.
Some copies still available for reduced price at Joop.vanLenteren@wur.nl.

IOBC history book: International Organization for Biological Control of Noxious Animals and Plants: History of the first 50 Years (1956-2006)

International Organization for Biological Control of Noxious Animals and Plants: History of the first 50 Years (1956-2006).
Boller, E.F., J.C. van Lenteren and V. Delucchi (eds.), 2006, IOBC, Zürich, 287 pp.
The International Organisation for Biological Control (IOBC) celebrates its 50th anniversary. What started in 1956 with the first meeting of European pioneers in biological control evolved into an independent organisation with world-wide activities (www.iobc-global.org). IOBC’s expertise covers now all aspects of sustainable crop protection in major annual and perennial crops. To commemorate this milestone, a book on the colourful history of this organisation has been published.
The book can be ordered at Joop.vanLenteren@wur.nl (10 Euro / 15 US$ including shipment).
