ANN HAJEK is Associate Professor in the Department of Entomology at Cornell University.


'... a nicely written and illustrated book on biological control ...' Journal of Insect Conservation 'It is a book that is designed to take the reader through the value, uses and approaches to biological control, emphasising each point with clearly described examples. And this it does very well indeed.' Leonard G. Copping, Pest Management Science 'The strength of the text, in my opinion, lies in the enthusiasm for the organisms, especially the entomophagous fungi with which Hajek is so familiar.' Ecology '... a remarkable textbook that she has left no member of this community out: from vertebrates to pathogens. The text is written in a very accessible language appropriate for students whose primary focus may not be entomology or biological control.' Natural Entomologist
