This book is the result of a symposium held at the 19th International Congress of Entomology, Beijing in July 1992 and covers advances made in the study of parasitic wasps of the genus Aphytis over the last 12 years. The book is intended to present a major contribution to our knowledge of a very important group of biological control agents, covering basic ecological and biosystematic aspects, as well as applied utilization in pest management. This important work will be of interest to biological control practitioners, agricultural entomologists and advanced students of biological control, IPM and agricultural entomology.
