Establishment and dispersal of introduced exotic parthenium controlling bioagent Zygogramma bicolorata in relation to ecological factors at Vindhyanagar



Establishment and dispersal of introduced exotic parthenium controlling bioagent Zygogramma bicolorata in relation to ecological factors at Vindhyanagar



Indian Journal of Ecology 25(1): 8-13



To suppress parthenium (Parthenium hysterophorus) using a biological control agent, the chrysomelid beetle Zygogramma bicolorata was released following host specificity tests in Bangalore, India, in 1984. Adults were collected from Bangalore and released in 1991 at Vindhyanagar, Madhya Pradesh. Although few insects were observed three years after the initial release in and around Vindhyanagar, a 1996 survey revealed that Z. bicolorata has spread up to 28 km from the release site.
