The UC Interactive Tutorial for Biological Control of Insects and Mites
University of California. Statewide Integrated Pest Management Program.
Students, professionals, growers, and master gardeners will benefit from this interactive CD-ROM teaching tool, released in December 2001. Covering more than 60 beneficial species on 75 narrated screens, this tutorial focuses on recognizing signs of parasitism and predation, identifying specific natural enemies of common pests, and understanding the biology of several predators, parasites, and pathogens. Twenty-four interactive games and quizzes, including multiple-choice, matching, or "complete-the-diagram" questions, enhance learning.
