Biological Control Documentation Center

The BCDC maintains the ROBO database, and in addition, has extensive files of correspondence, published and unpublished reports, and reprints concerning biological control research and related activities, primarily involving U.S. Department of Agriculture activities, but also including many records from other involved organizations, dating back to the 1930s or before. Also, the BCDC maintains a rather extensive library of journals and books relating to biological control, IPM, and taxonomy related to biological control activities. Scientists from the USDA and other U.S. scientific institutions, and foreign scientists and the general interested public are invited to visit the BCDC to utilize these unique resources.
