Long term changes in the communities of native ladybirds in Northern Italy: impact of the invasive species Harmonia axyridis (Pallas)

Since the mid-2000s, the exotic coccinellid species Harmonia axyridis (Pallas) has established itself in Northern Italy, raising serious concerns about possible repercussions on native ladybirds. In this study we compared the ladybird assemblages …


Presence of a generalist entomopathogenic fungus influences the oviposition behaviour of an aphid-specific predator

The predator Aphidoletes aphidimyza (Rondani) (Diptera: Cecidomyiidae) and the generalist entomopathogenic fungus Metarhizium brunneum Petch (Hypocreales: Clavicipitaceae) are effective biological control agents that can co-occur in pest …


Evaluating the efficacy of Hypogeococcus sp. as a biological control agent of the cactaceous weed Cereus jamacaru in South Africa

We evaluated the efficacy of Hypogeococcus sp. (Hemiptera: Pseudococcidae) as a biological control agent of the cactaceous weed Cereus jamacaru De Candolle (Queen of the Night cactus) in South Africa. This weed has been described as being under …

Über diese Zeitschrift

BioControl, the official journal of the International Organization for Biological Control, presents original papers on basic and applied research in all aspects of biological control of invertebrate, vertebrate and weed pests, and plant diseases. Coverage includes biology and ecology of organisms for biological control, and aspects of use including biological controls for integrated pest management, such as plant resistance, pheromones and intercropping.

Organisms covered include parasitoids, invertebrate and vertebrate predators of pest animals and plants, mites, plant and insect pathogens, nematodes, and weeds.

The journal publishes interdisciplinary papers with a global perspective on the use of biological control in integrated pest management systems, and related developments in molecular biology and biotechnology that have direct relevance.

BioControl also publishes forum papers and invited reviews and Letters to the Editor.

Unsicherheitsabschätzung für die Berechnung von dynamischen Überschwemmungskarten – Fallstudie Kulmbach

Das vom BMBF geförderte Projekt FloodEvac hat zum Ziel, im Hochwasserfall räumliche und zeitliche Informationen der Hochwassergefährdung bereitzustellen. Im hier vorgestellten Teilprojekt werden Überschwemmungskarten zu Wassertiefen und Fließgeschwindigkeiten unter Angabe der Modellunsicherheiten berechnet.
