Abstract Integrated pest management (IPM) is an interdisciplinary science dealing with the development, evaluation, and implementation of pest control strategies that result in favorable economic, ecologic, and sociologic consequences. IPM has received considerable attention during the past few years, and this has led to recommendations directly related to the growth of the science of hematology. This report describes the current state of IPM in relation to the role of hematology, with special emphasis on scientific personnel requirements. All current indications are that IPM will continue to grow, very likely at an increased rate. This will place additional research, extension, and teaching demands on current hematology programs and should result in an expended resource base for nematology.
