Slugs and Snails: Agricultural, Veterinary and Environmental Perspectives
Proceedings No. 80
Chaired by Georges Dussart
Molluscs tend to be the Cinderella of biocontrol research, despite the fact that they cause enormous amounts of economic, medical and veterinary damage to human societies.
This symposium addressed issues of classification, economics, physiology, behaviour and integrated pest management with particular attention paid to applied aspects. The importance of the evolutionary context and the value of biochemistry and molecular biology in the service of control are also considered.
