"...the first comprehensive compendium on biological control in many years. This volume fills a niche vacant for more than two decades and will help attract and educate a new generation of biological control scientists."
--Julio S. Bernal, Texas A&M University, in THE QUARTERLY REVIEW OF BIOLOGY (March 2001)
"This is a truly comprehensive work... For the practitioner of biological control access to this volume is essential, but the general entomologist will find much of interest."
--T.R.E. Southwood in ENTOMOLOGIST'S MONTHLY MAGAZINE (2000)
"...a gem for anyone seeking a comprehensive understanding of biological control."
--Stephen Hoskins in BIOLOGICAL JOURNAL OF THE LINNEAN SOCIETY (2000)
"The book is produced in the first-rate standards of Academic Press publications. It is well edited, and is accompanied with detailed subject and taxonomic indexes. Each chapter is supplemented by extensive bibliography. I am convinced that the book will find numerous readers especially among entomologists, but also among botanists, plant pathologists, soil microbiologists, plant scientists and technicians working in agricultural research, and growers interested in biological control."
