Abstract Not Available – First paragraph follows:
The University of California has been a leader in the development of methods to reduce reliance on pesticides. California was the site of the first major successes of biological control for insect pests during the latter part of the 19th century, and the term integrated control (the forerunner of integrated pest management) was coined by UC entomologists in the late 1950s.
