Interest in biological methods of control of pests has increased in recent years, largely as a result of concerns over pesticide residues and their influence on food quality and the environment. Effects on non-target organisms are of particular importance, and the use of biological control agents is seen as a possible way round these problems. Three articles in this volume deal with biocontrol possibilities for pests as diverse as those attacking vegetable and arable crops to mosquitoes. A fourth article describes how natural plant products can be used to control insect pests of stored products, whilst a fifth review covers the ways in which insect pests of oilseed rape respond to chemical cues in the location of host crops. Current control and management systems are covered in reviews of
