Biological control is a pest control method with low environmental impact and small contamination risk for humans, domestic animals and the environment.

Weeds are a major constraint to agricultural production, particularly in the developing world. Cost-efficient biological control is a self-sustaining way to reduce this problem, and produces fewer non-target effects than chemical methods, which can cause serious damage to the environment.

This Biological Control in the Tropics book covers the origin, distribution, and ecology of twenty model. 1 Biological control of weeds in the tropics and sustainability 1 R. Muniappan, G. Reddy, and A. Raman 2 Acacia nilotica ssp. indica (L.) Willd.

ex Del. (Mimosaceae) Biological control is a pest control method with low environmental impact and small contamination risk for humans, domestic animals and the environment. Several success cases of biological control can be found in the tropics around the world.

The classical biological control has been applied with greater emphasis in Australia and Latin. Biological control has been central to many recent successful integrated pest management programmes. It is also the natural choice where protection of the environment is particularly important. This book reviews current knowledge of biocontrol programmes in the tropics, particularly in developing countries.

It is based on papers presented at a symposium held in. Biological control of weeds has been practised for over years and Australia has been a leader in this weed management technique. The classical example of control of prickly pears in Australia by the cactus moth Cactoblastis cactorum, which was imported from the Americas, helped to set the future for biocontrol of weeds in many by: Biological control is an environmentally sound and effective means of reducing or mitigating pests and pest effects through the use of natural enemies.

The aim of Biological Control is to promote this science and technology through publication of original research articles and reviews of research and theory. The journal devotes a section to reports on biotechnologies dealing with. This text provides readers with an in-depth exploration of how biological control functions and how it can be safely employed to solve pest problems and enhance nature conservation.

It covers the principles behind biological control techniques and their implementation, and incorporates practical examples from the biological control of a variety of pests.3/5(2).

This book covers the origin, distribution, and ecology of twenty invasive tropical weed species, and their sustainable biological control using arthropods.

Biological Control promotes the science and technology of biological control through publication of original research articles and reviews of research and theory.

ISBNBiological control has been defined simply as the utilization of natural enemies to reduce the damage caused by noxious organisms to tolerable levels (DeBach and Rosen, ).

One approach to biological control has been termed “classical Biological Control in the Tropics book control”; it involves the discovery, importation, and establishment of exotic natural enemies.

Cost-efficient biological control is a self-sustaining way to reduce this problem, and produces fewer non-target effects than chemical methods, which can Price: $ Biological control is a component of an integrated pest management strategy.

It is defined as the reduction of pest populations by natural enemies and typically involves an active human role. Keep in mind that all insect species are also suppressed by naturally occurring organisms and environmental factors, with no human input. This is. Cost-efficient biological control is a self-sustaining way to reduce this problem, and produces fewer non-target effects than chemical methods, which can cause serious damage to the environment.

This book covers the origin, distribution, and ecology of twenty model invasive weed species, which occur in habitats from tropical to temperate to. Biological control using egg parasitoids particularly from the genus Trichogramma and Telenomus remus is part of the IPM approach presently underway to control FAW in North and South America.

The approach involves mass rearing and release of these egg parasitoids to control FAW. These egg parasitoids are reared on factitious and natural Size: 3MB. Get this from a library.

Chemical control is inappropriate for the small scale farmer and the use of alternative measures should be encouraged. Different biological methods of control such as cultural, physical, varietal, biological, biorational and genetic control are by: Biological control of weeds in the tropics and sustainability R.

Muniappan, G.V.P. Reddy, and A. Raman Introduction Efforts to manage weeds using biological control have been gaining momentum throughout the world, especially in the recent.

Biological control or biocontrol is a method of controlling pests such as insects, mites, weeds and plant diseases using other organisms. It relies on predation, parasitism, herbivory, or other natural mechanisms, but typically also involves an active human management can be an important component of integrated pest management (IPM) programs.

There are three basic strategies. The biological control of pest tephritid flies using parasitoids has been successful in relatively few subtropical and tropical regions. The best documented successes were in Hawaii and Florida, USA, Fiji and southern Europe. There were relatively limited successes in Australia, Costa Rica and Mexico.

With the accidental establishment of new pest tephritids, such as Cited by: Dharam P. Abrol, Uma Shankar, in Breeding Oilseed Crops for Sustainable Production, Biological control.

Various biological control agents attack pests. Spilosoma obliqua larvae have been reported to be parasitized by Charops sp. by up to 38% and up to % by Apanteles obliquaei and A. ruides (Shetgar et al., ).Helicoverpa armigera, a dreaded pest of.

Thus the fruit crops provide a relatively stable environment, offering good opportunities for biological control and effective pest management programmes (Bennet et al., ).

Many examples of successful biological control of pests of such crops, starting with Icerya purchasi Maskell by Rodolia cardinalis Mulsant in California in Author: M. Mani, A. Krishnamoorthy. Biological control, or biological pest control, is the reduction of pest populations by using natural enemies.

It is important because crop pests become resistant to chemical pesticides. Natural enemies of insect pests include predators, parasitoids, and ical control agents of weeds include herbivores and plant pathogens. Predators, such as birds, lady beetles and. Prospects for biological control in the tropics are discussed.

Classical biological control has been very effective against many introduced pests in the tropics and because it is permanent should be preferred as a control strategy. However, many pests are native or long established and of uncertain origin.

Although classical biological control of these is more difficult, it has been Cited by: 2. Biological control, the use of living organisms to control pests. A natural enemy such as a parasite, predator, or disease organism is introduced into the environment of a pest or, if already present, is encouraged to multiply and become more effective in.
