Description:

Biological control researchers commonly avoid targets with potential for high conflict, but for certain highly damaging invaders with no viable management alternatives, it may be necessary to consider biological control even when it is likely to generate conflict. Discussed here is a case study, strawberry guava (Psidium cattleianum Sabine) in Hawaii, in which conflicting views of the targeted plant engendered substantial opposition to biological control. The processes followed and lessons learned may be useful for others considering biological control as a management option for widespread plant invasions in natural areas.

Keywords: biological control, conflict, strawberry guava
