    This book is about the twentieth-century incorporation of biological weapons into the arsenals of industrial states and its implications for present times, when new technologies and persistent political animosities may allow even more ominous threats than in. Biological control of pests, weeds, and plant and animal diseases utilising their natural antagonists is a well-established but rapidly evolving field of applied ecology. Despite its documented applications and systematic development efforts for longer than a century, biological control still remains a grossly underexploited method of pest. The Working Group on the History of the Biological Sciences meets monthly to discuss a colleague’s work in progress or to discuss readings that are of particular interest to participants. Meetings are usually held at the Consortium offices in Philadelphia from to on first Thursdays. Scholars located anywhere can also participate online. The Southwest Biological Science Center (SBSC) conducts quality, objective research on the lands and aquatic systems of the Southwest. This research can assist those who manage, conserve, and rehabilitate the arid regions of the nation. Click on SCIENCE in the sidebar to the left to explore SBSC science in more detail.
