Description: Taxonomy is the starting point of any basic or applied biological research. In biological control work, the pest species, its probable area of origin, and, consequently, the location where promising natural enemies may be found, are identified. The close co-operation of taxonomists during pre- and post-release surveys of natural enemies in target areas helps to indicate the indigenous fauna present and the progress of a biological control programme. Biological control programs should budget for appropriate taxonomic sutdies in areas where the local fauna is poorly known. Instructing local researchers on the correct collection, preservation, and identification of relevant indigenous and exotic species should be emphasized.
