Abstract: Introductions and liberations of natural enemies for the biological control of
agricultural and forest pests in Hawaii are presented for the period 1987–1996. A total
of 24 arthropod and 2 fungal species were released or re-released (augmentation) by
the Hawaii Department of Agriculture for the control of 4 weeds (Clidemia hirta, Coccinia grandis, Passiflora mollissima, and Ulex europaeus) and 9 insect pests (Bemisia argentifolii, Brontispa chalybeipennis, Elasmopalpus lignosellus, Frankliniella
occidentalis, Heteropsylla cubana, Liriomyza spp., Nezara viridula, Plutella xylostella,
and Sipha flava).
