Symposium: Promoting biocontrol in small-holder agriculture
call closes when slots are filled
Agricultural and entomological research tends to focus on the developed world. Yet smallholder farmers in less developed countries are extremely numerous, critical to local food security, and are burdened by large yield gaps. Biological control in these settings has great potential because natural enemies are favoured by the generally lower intensity of pesticide use, lower levels of monoculture, and (often) presence of source vegetation and refuge habitats. The full potential of biocontrol in smallholder systems is, however, limited by important research gaps that we will address.
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.
