Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is a method of coordinating different pest control techniques which balance environmental, economic, and social issues with the traditional use of chemical pesticides. The author predicts expanding implementation of biological control methods of IPM in light of the environmental harm and expense that results from the use of chemical pesticides. This guide to legal and nonlegal resources focuses on research in the area of biological control methods of IPM, and the means of obtaining current information on this topic.
