    Description

    A comprehensive review of biological control of weeds in Hawaii was last published in 1992, covering 74 natural enemy species released from 1902 through 1980. The present review summarizes releases of 21 natural enemies targeting seven invasive weeds from 1981 to 2010. These projects were carried out by Hawaii Department of Agriculture (HDOA), USDA Forest Service (USFS), University of Hawaii (UH), and US Geological Survey Biological Resources Discipline. An appendix summarizing the chronology and outcomes of releases is included (Appendix 1).
