Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: This publication includes 196 papers and abstracts of presentations made at the twenty-fifth meeting of the International Symposium on Biological Control of Weeds (ISBCW) held at Engelberg, Switzerland on 27-31 August 2018. The sessions included: target and agent selection, opportunities and constraints for classical weed biocontrol in developing countries, bioherbicides, novel methods to determine efficacy and environmental safety of agents, making classical biological control more predictive: moving from ecological to evolutionary processes, regulations for agent release and access to genetic resources, social and economic assessments of biological control, opportunities and constraints for classical weed biocontrol in developed countries, post-release monitoring and evaluation, and integrated weed management and restoration.
