Ecological theory and biological control

Ecological theory and biological control

Baker, R. R. And P. E. Dunn (ed.). Ucla (university Of California-Los Angeles) Symposia On Molecular And Cellular Biology New Series, Vol. 112. New Directions In Biological Control: Alternatives For Suppressing Agricultural Pests And Diseases; Colloquium, Frisco, Colorado, Usa, January 20-27,. Xxii 837p. Alan R. Liss, Inc: New York, New York, Usa. Illus. 49-56

Two feature of biological control systems strongly affect their dynamics, and vary among systems: the spatial structure of their interacting populations, and their life history characteristics. Recent theoretical developments are beginning to take this variety of possible systems into account, and lead to new insights that need to be tested in the field.
