Categories Biological Control
Abstract Ecologists believed that they had excellent solutions in helping biological control evolve from art to science during the past 50 years. Regularly, these solutions failed to have a positive impact on biological control and in a number of cases even hampered progress. Are pure scientists arrogant, naive or both? Are they unable or even unwilling to involve themselves in applied science? Are biological practitioners equally naive and why is commercial biological control not used on a much larger scale?
