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.

Area-Wide Integrated Pest Management (Open Acess book)

Area-Wide Integrated Pest Management 
Development and Field Application
Edited by: Jorge Hendrichs, Rui Pereira, Marc J.B. Vreysen
1st Edition, first published 2020, eBook published 1 January 2021

Several IOBC members participated in writing chapters of this book.

Over 98% of sprayed insecticides and 95% of herbicides reach a destination other than their target species, including non-target species, air, water and soil. The extensive reliance on insecticide use reduces biodiversity, contributes to pollinator decline, destroys habitat, and threatens endangered species. This book offers a more effective application of the Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach, on an area-wide (AW) or population-wide (AW-IPM) basis, which aims at the management of the total population of a pest, involving a coordinated effort over often larger areas. For major livestock pests, vectors of human diseases and pests of high-value crops with low pest tolerance, there are compelling economic reasons for participating in AW-IPM.

Insect Pest Management
3rd Edition, November 2020
By: David Dent, Dent Associates Ltd, UK, Richard Binks, FreshTec, UK

An undergraduate and postgraduate textbook covering the key principles, methodologies, approaches and practical examples of insect pest management in agricultural, post harvest systems, horticulture, insect vectors and medical and veterinary entomology. The book covers the underpinning monitoring and forecasting of pest outbreaks, yield loss and impact assessments and all of the latest methods of control and management of insects from insecticides, host manipulation, plant resistance, biological control, use of interference, agronomic and precision control methods as well as socio-economic and research management aspects of developing integrated approaches to pest management. The new edition also reflects the key advances made in the disciplines of molecular biology, biochemistry and genomics related to insects and their management, as well as the importance and role of biodiversity, climate change, precision agriculture, data management and sustainability of production and supply in delivering integrated management solutions.

Integrative Biological Control - Ecostacking for Enhanced Ecosystem Services, 2020.

Integrative Biological Control - Ecostacking for Enhanced Ecosystem Services,
Edited by: Yulin Gao, Heikki M. T. Hokkanen and Ingeborg Menzler-Hokkanen, April 2020, 248 pages, ISBN 978-3-030-44837-0

This book is the first to integrate biological control into a conceptual framework – ecostacking - uniting all aspects of biological control and ecosystem services. In 2018 the "First International Congress of Biological Control" was organised and held in Beijing, China. The chapters highlight some of the achievements presented at the congress, worldwide. Of particular significance are the numerous contributions by Chinese researchers illustrating the remarkable progress made on developing and adopting multiple biological control strategies over vast agricultural areas, largely replacing chemical pesticides for sustainable agricultural and horticultural production. In many parts of the world including Europe, fragmented research based on short-term funding has been unable to answer to the needs to develop sustainable long-term solutions to crop protection, while colleagues in China have been successful in implementing programs that exemplify the power of the ecostacking approach. Key contributions by European and US specialists combined with the expertise and experiences by the Chinese contributors comprise the building blocks for the integration of biological control approaches into the overall frame of ecostacking. This book will lead the way to a broader, integrated adoption of biological control techniques in sustainable pest, disease and weed management supporting also the functioning of other key ecosystem services.

Chapter 2 of this book is available open.

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 as well as on the IOBC-WPRS Facebook and Twitter channels.

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.

IOBC Book: 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
ISBN: 92-9067-194-5 [ 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.
