This book summarizes the biological control programmes in Canada since 1981. The book includes three chapters on the relationships of invasive species, pesticides and taxonomy to biological control, and contains sections on insects and mites (55 chapters, including crop pests, forest pests, public health pests and livestock pests), weeds (25 chapters), and pathogens (19 chapters). Some emphasis is given on pathogens and nematodes either as targets for control or as biological control agents acting directly as hyperparasites or pathogens, or indirectly as antagonists competing successfully for the same resources as the target pest. Appendices provide details of noteworthy publications on biological control from 1981-2000 and Canadian suppliers of biological control organisms .Brockerhoff, E.G. and Kenis, M.
