Proceedings of workshop on biological control of native ecosystems in Hawaii.

The following recommendations are made to improve overseas research on biological control agents. Conduct more long-term overseas evaluations. Place much greater emphasis on field host range studies. Carry out more research on impact and efficacy of potential agents. Perform more ecological research overseas on target weed. Adhere to international standards for biological control studies. Document all findings including failures.
