Biological control is a very applied discipline, but occasionally we can look at more fundamental aspects of ecology that affect it - the evolution of host choice is one of these. David Briese is a Principal Research Scientist with CSIRO (Canberra, Australia) and is interested in population ecology in relation to biological control. He recently spent 5 years at Montpellier studying potential control agents of Onopordum thistles, where he collaborated to produce this paper with Christophe Espiau, who supplied the technical expertise on gel electrophoresis, and Annick Pouchot-Lermans, who helped analyse some of the data for her Diploma in Applied Insect Taxonomy at the University of Wales, Cardiff.
