Symposium: Is It Time to Reconsider the IOBC Rating Scale Associated with the Effects of Pesticides on Beneficial Organisms?
call closes when slots are filled
Integration of chemical and biological control is an increasingly common IPM strategy for managing pests of greenhouse-grown horticultural crops. Currently, the effects of pesticides on predators and parasitoids are evaluated using what are often considered outdated standards set by the International Organization for Biological Control (IOBC). At issue is that the IOBC rating scale can underestimate negative effects of pesticides on beneficial arthropods. Invited speakers will provide historical context on the use of the IOBC scale and discuss its relevance with respect to current research.
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.
