Zusammenfassung: The XIV International Symposium on Biological Control of Weeds will take place from 2nd to 7th March 2014 in Kruger National Park, South Africa, at the Nombolo Mdhuli Conference Centre, Skukuza. South Africa has a long history of biological control of weeds, and celebrates its centenary during 2013 after beginning in 1913 with the highly-successful introduction of a cochineal insect against a prickly pear cactus, Opuntia monacantha. Over the ensuing 100 years some 73 plant species have been targets for biological control. Agents have become established on 48 of the targeted species and South Africa remains committed to expanding this area of research. To celebrate this historical occasion, we look forward to hosting a gathering which will bring together world leaders in the field, to share experiences and exchange knowledge in a congenial corner of our country. The symposium will provide an opportunity for delegates to present novel research on all aspects of biological weed control and to discuss the way forward for the discipline. Kruger National Park was established in 1898 and is the flagship of the South African National Parks. It covers an area of nearly 2 million hectares and is home to a wide range of species including 507 birds, 336 trees, 147 mammals and 114 reptiles. Skukuza is the largest camp in Kruger, situated in the southern part of the park on the banks of the Sabie River.
