BioNET-INTERNATIONAL Technical Secretariat
Beschreibung: 
BioNET's mission BioNET strives to enhance biodiversity conservation and human well-being by building capacity to discover, name and classify the world’s living organisms. BioNET’s regional networks have partnership-based programmes of work including typically e.g. the identification of taxonomic needs; human resource development; adoption and use of technologies; training and facilities for biological collections; increasing access to literature and information. LOOP work programmes serve as a framework for activities to be supported by member institutions, governments, international partners and development agencies. LOOPs provide BioNET and its international partners with in-depth local knowledge and direct insights into local priorities and institutional opportunities for developing taxonomic products and capacity.

Cassava Mealybug
Beschreibung: 
In Africa, the cassava mealybug (Phenacoccus manihoti) can cause up to 80% crop loss of the yuca, which is extremely detrimental to the production of subsistence farmers. These pests were rampant in the 1970s and 1980s, but were brought under control following the establishment of the Biological Control Center for Africa of the IITA under the leadership of Dr. Hans Rudolf Herren. The South American natural enemy Apoanagyrus lopezi (a parasitoid wasp) was found to effectively control the cassava mealybug
