Symposium: Omnivorous predators in augmentative biological control: blessing or nightmare?
call closes when slots are filled
Recently the use of polyphagous predatory insects and mites in biocontrol has grown considerably. Omnivorous predators feed on more than one pest species and can be used as a first line of defense before using a more specialized natural enemy or used in combination with other natural enemies. But quite a number of predators currently used are omnivorous, and feed on plants or fruit, which might result in serious damage and reduction in fruit quality or yield. Also, these polyphagous predators are often involved in intraguild predation. During the symposium, we will evaluate the advantages and
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.
