This quantity attempts to map out the interesting amalgam of alternative, in part conflicting ways that formed early smooth zoology. It demonstrates that theology and philology performed a pivotal position within the advanced formation of this new technology.

Peacemaking among Primates

Population suppression in AW-IPM programmes can be achieved by reducing the reproductive potential of the target population using either natural or artificially induced sterility. Four decades ago, cytoplasmic AREA-WIDE INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT incompatibility was used to demonstrate population suppression in isolated populations of Culex pipiens L. (Laven 1967), and since then scientific knowledge about its causative agent Wolbachia pipientis Hertig has dramatically increased (Werren 1997). Wolbachia is a bacterial symbiont known to be widespread in many arthropod species, including some populations of tsetse, where its presence does not seem to cause cytoplasmic incompatibility.
