The IOBC promotes the development of biological control and its application in integrated plant protection and production programmes. Biological control is the use of living organisms to prevent the losses caused by pest organisms or, more succinctly, the use of biota to control biota. The IOBC coordinates biological control activities worldwide in six regional sections (Africa, Asia and the Pacific, East Europe, West Europe and the Mediterranean, North America and Central, Caribean and South America) and working groups. This book describes the origin and development of the organisation and gives a historical overview of its activities.
