Special Issue "Biological Control of Plant Pests in Protected Culture"
A special issue of Insects (ISSN 2075-4450).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (28 February 2019)
Biological control using predators, parasitoids, or pathogens has been recognized as an effective method to control plant pests in agricultural systems, especially in protected culture, i.e., greenhouses. The aim of this special issue is to highlight recent advances in biocontrol research in greenhouses, high tunnels, nurseries, and plantscapes. Authors are invited to submit manuscripts describing research on any aspect of biocontrol in protected culture. Experimental and theoretical approaches to the study of natural enemy behavior, ecology, physiology, or nutriton are encouraged.
