Hypsipyla grandella and Hypsipyla robusta are serious pests of species of the subfamily Swietenioideae of the family Meliaceae in virtually every moist tropical region of the world. An international workshop reviewed the ecology and control of Hypsipyla shoot borers of Meliaceae, identified promising control methods, and set priorities for future research. The conclusions of the workshop are presented with specific recommendations for research in aspects of the taxonomy, biology, and ecology of Hypsipyla, and pest management options that use host plant resistance and chemical, biological, and silvicultural control

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
