Symposium: Essential and useless ecological knowledge for applied biological control
call closes when slots are filled
Thousands of ecological papers end with phrases like: results found for this natural enemy are important for development of biocontrol. However, those who wrote the paper seldomly pursue the issue whether the species can be used in practical biocontrol. The most urgent problem in biocontrol is how to quickly find a good natural enemy out of the hundreds of species attacking a pest. We will address the following questions: (1) Do reliable and quantifiable ecological criteria exist to quickly exclude those natural enemies that might not be effective at all, or cause unacceptable negative effects
Journals participating in Peerage of Science
Available before, during and after the peer review process. All Select destinations have concurrent access to all ongoing peer review processes, and the right to make direct publishing offers to you. Note that journals may require additional in-house peer review.
Available only after the peer review process is complete. Submission to a Connect destination exports the process exclusively and cancels any existing offers from The Select destinations (the traditional "no simultaneous consideration" policy). However, you can cancel export later by exporting to another Connect destination, or by returning the process to full availability. Note that journals may require additional in-house peer review.
You can create a link to the peer review process and give it to editors of any journal of your choice in a traditional submission. Using the link is a free service for both you and the receiving journal.
