Title: The legacy of Charles Marlatt and efforts to limit plant pest invasions
Author: Liebhold, Andrew M.; Griffin, Robert L.;

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)
Description: The problem of invasions by non-native plant pests has come to dominate the field of applied entomology. Most of the damaging insect pests of agriculture and forestry are non-native (Sailer 1978, Aukema et al. 2010) and this is a problem being faced around the world. This problem did not arise overnight; instead, there has been a steady accumulation of non-native insect species in nearly every region of the world over the last two centuries. Yamanaka et al. (2015) reported that there are presently more than 3,000 non-native insect species established in North America, and most are plant-feeding species.
