Both efforts proved unsuccessful and a new programme was initiated in 1984 and completed in 1995. Four agents have been released and are...

In Hawaii, the weed gorse (Ulex europaeus) is a range, forest and urban problem covering 15 000 ha at elevations between 750 and 2000 m. After unsuccessful release of a seed weevil in 1926, efforts at biological control began in earnest in the 195...

Gorse, Ulex europaeus, occurs in all Australian states, but principally in Tasmania and Victoria. An early attempt at biological control in Australia resulted in the establishment of the gorse seed weevil, Exapion ulicis, in 1939. E. ulicis is now...

Gorse spider mite, Tetranychus lintearius, was imported into New Zealand in 1988 for the biological control of gorse, Ulex europaeus. It has been released at 34 sites so far, and further widespread liberations are planned before the end of 1989. W...
