This e-book has been built from the keynote addresses introduced on the 3rd IOBC overseas Symposium (co-organized with CILBA) that was once held in Montpellier in October 2002, to handle fresh advancements in genetics and evolutionary biology as utilized to organic keep watch over. Chapters are equipped round the following subject matters: Genetic constitution of pest and usual enemy populations Molecular diagnostic instruments in organic keep an eye on Tracing the starting place of pests and usual enemies Predicting evolutionary switch in pests and ordinary enemies Compatibility of transgenic vegetation and ordinary enemies Genetic manipulation of common enemies. The authors establish new concerns for every of the key methods in utilized organic keep an eye on. those contain the (1) use of molecular genetics to track the foundation of objective pests in classical organic keep watch over, (2) capability of mass-reared, transgenic brokers in augmentative organic keep an eye on, and (3) compatibility of transgenic plants and typical enemies in conservational organic regulate.
