AbstractInvestigates natural enemies of Sida acuta and S. rhombifolia in Mexico over a three year period. The research was undertaken to find biocontrol agents for these Sida species in Australia, where they are non-native and invasive. Twelve species were considered to have potential as biological control agents.
