Proceedings of a symposium jointly organized by the IAEA and FAO, Vienna, 19–23 October 1992. In the past decade significant progress has been made in overcoming many of the difficulties of biologically based methods of pest management. Particularly important are the advances made in the field of molecular technology and biotechnology. Presentations in this symposium focus on advances and trends in insect control and eradication, genetic engineering and molecular biology, insect genetics, operational SIT programmes, F1 sterility and behaviour, biocontrol, tsetse fly R&D, and quarantine.
Contents: Genetic engineering and molecular biology; Genetics; Operational programmes; F1 sterility and insect behaviour; Biocontrol; Research and development on the tsetse fly; Quarantine.
