New associations in biological control: theory and practice

, : New associations in biological control: theory and practice. Canadian Entomologist, 12110: 829-840

H.M.T. Hokkanen and D. Pimentel (1984) recommended a strategy for selecting biological control agents where evolutionarily new exploiter-victim associations are utilized to improve the probability of finding effective biocontrol agents. The new association approach for selecting biological control agents was reanalysed in the light of recent data. The results support the conclusion that the new association approach is ecologically and statistically sound.
