Ecological impact of insects introduced for biological control of weeds - conflicting interests



Ecological impact of insects introduced for biological control of weeds - conflicting interests



Current Science 65(12): 901, 903-905



With special reference to the introduction of Zygogramma bicolorata into India for the biological control of the weed Parthenium hysterophorus, a review is presented of conflicting interests regarding the ecological impact of insects for biological control of weeds. Various biological control projects in many parts of the world are mentioned.
