Contents 1. Current status and constraints in the assessment of non-target effects / Dirk Babendreier, Franz Bigler and Ulrich Kuhlmann -- 2. Selection of non-target species for host specificity testing / Ulrich Kuhlmann, Urs Schaffner and Peter G. Mason -- 3. Host specificity in arthropod biological control, methods for testing and interpretation of the data / Joop C. van Lenteren, Matthew J.W. Cock, Thomas S. Hoffmeister and Don P.A. Sands -- 4. Measuring and predicting indirect impacts of biological control : competition, displacement and secondary interactions / Russell Messing, Bernard Roitberg and Jacques Brodeur -- 5. Risks of interbreeding between species used in biological control and native species, and methods for evaluating their occurrence and impact / Keith R. Hopper, Seth C. Britch and Eric Wajnberg -- 6.

Summary This book provides an invaluable review of the current methodologies used for assessing the environmental impacts of invertebrate biological agents used to control pests in agriculture and forestry. It explores methods to evaluate post-release effects and the environmental impact of dispersal, displacement and establishment of invertebrate biological control agents
