BioControl - Official journal of IOBC

BioControl is the official journal of the International Organization for Biological Control (IOBC) and presents original papers on basic and applied research in all aspects of biological control of invertebrate, vertebrate and weed pests, and plant diseases.
Over the years, it has established a leading role in publishing the finest and most exciting work on all aspects of biological control of invertebrate, vertebrate and weed pests, and plant diseases.

BioControl - official journal of the International Organisation for Biological Control (IOBC)

Coverage includes biology and ecology of organisms for biological control, and aspects of use including biological controls for integrated pest management, such as plant resistance, pheromones and intercropping. Papers presenting only laboratory trials on non-target effects of pesticides on natural enemies are not considered but papers dealing with the corresponding effects on community dynamics of natural enemies are welcomed.
IOBC-WPRS individual and supporting members can subscribe to BioControl at substantially reduced cost. Institutional members have the subscription included in their membership fee.

IOBC-WPRS Newsletter Profile (Archive)

The publication of this Newsletter of IOBC-WPRS was discontinued in 2010 and replaced by the e-mail Newsletter and announcements posted in the News section of the web site.

Old issues (1999-2009) of Profile can be consulted in this Archive:

IOBC-WPRS Newsletter Profile

The IOBC-WPRS newsletter, PROFILE, was first released in January 1984. For 26 years PROFILE provided information about the activities of Working and Study Groups, meetings, news from the Council, information from IOBC-Global, etc.
Over that time PROFILE was served by three excellent editors: Ernst Boller (1984-1987), followed by Albert Minks (1988-1996), and finally by Horst Bathon (1997-2009). All three editors contributed tremendously to compiling and spreading news and information about wprs through the printed version of PROFILE, as this was the only channel before the internet website. PROFILE first appeared as a PDF on the IOBC-WPRS website in 2003, and past issues can be found under Publications. For the past few years the IOBC-WPRS website, with its continual updates, has served as the forum for dissemination of most information formerly covered by PROFILE; therefore, the newsletter will no longer be produced. This decision was taken at the General Assembly in Ocotber 2009. The Council appreciates all efforts of everyone that provided information to PROFILE over the years and expresses its deep gratitude to the three editors for years of dedication and service.

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).
