    Assessing indirect impacts of biological control agents on native biodiversity: a community-level approach L.G. Carvalheiro,1 Y.M. Buckley,2,3 R. Ventim1 and J. Memmott1 Summary The safety of biological control methods is a subject that has received considerable attention for a long time. Evaluation of techniques for assessing risk to non-target organisms posed by natural enemies being considered for use in biological control programs has received much research attention (Lonsdale et al., ) and interest in this area is continuing to grow rapidly, especially for arthropod biological control agents (Hopper ; Van Driesche.

    Background information Environmental risks of biological control Indirect effects. Non-target impacts can be very complex and unpredictable. A good example of this is the extinction of the large blue butterfly, Maculinea arion (L.) partly attributable to the biological control of rabbits in the UK using the myxoma virus (Wells et al. ).The butterfly larvae live in ants nests and feed on.

Sorokin and Beauveria bassiana (Bals.) Vuill., carried out in Finland during the ERBIC-research by: Renewed debate over the risk of non-target effects in biological control reflects, in part, the recent quantification of direct and indirect ecological effects of the flowerhead weevil.

Abstract. In the past years many exotic natural enemies have been imported, mass reared and released as biological control agents. Negative environmental effects of these releases have rarely been reported (e.g., Lynch et al. ).To ensure the continuing safety and positive public image of biological control, many countries are requiring risk assessment for all biological control by: 9.

The prevalence of ecological idiosyncrasies, complex indirect effects and the possibility for synergistic effects among invaders, however, hinder our ability to predict ecological impacts.

We finish with a discussion of prioritizing the management and control of invasive species based on impact, and the need for more consistent measures of impact.

Biological control (BC), the science and technology of controlling pests with natural enemies, has had several recent successes, including suppression in Africa of invading mealybug and whitefly pests of cassava by means of introduced wasps ().Increasingly, BC is used to suppress weeds in natural areas, such as the ecosystems of South African Cape Fynbos, the Australian Kakadu National Cited by: Opinions about the value of biological control are often extreme.

Colloquially, biological control most often refers to classical biological control, in which one species is introduced from another region to control pests such as arthropod herbivores in agricultural systems, or weeds in managed and natural systems.
