Lepidium draba (Brassicaceae) is a major concern for agriculture and biodiversity in the western United States. As current control methods do not provide long-term, sustainable solutions, research has been conducted to find biological control agents. Ceutorhynchus assimilis is one of the currently investigated candidates. Known as oligophagous in the literature, a specialist clade of this...

Prospects for biological control of Ambrosia artemisiifolia in Europe: learning from the past

Gerber, E. ; Schaffner, Urs ; Gassmann, A. ; Hinz, H. L. ; Seier, M. ; Müller-Schärer, Heinz

In: Weed Research, 2011, vol. 51, no. 6, p. 559–573

The recent invasion by Ambrosia artemisiifolia (common ragweed) has, like no other plant, raised the awareness of invasive plants in Europe. The main concerns regarding this plant are that it produces a large amount of highly allergenic pollen that causes high rates of sensitisation among humans, but also A. artemisiifolia is increasingly becoming a major weed in agriculture. Recently, chemical...
