Pesticide impact research on arthropod natural enemies is summarized here as a preface to the remaining chapters of this volume, which discuss susceptibility, sublethal and ecological effects, selectivity, resistance, and resistance management. The presentation documents the amount of side-effect testing that is an on-going part of IPM research. The overview was derived from analysis of a database (SELCTV) which contains information from literature published mainly from 1950 to 1986. Seldom has database technology been used to summarize pesticide side-effect data on natural enemies. To our knowledge, no global review of the topic has been attempted in a database format.
