obtaining its objectives. A neglect of research management has to some extent been responsible for the slow progress made in the development of interdisciplinary IPM systems. This is disappointing, as much because the techniques of management are well established and are readily applicable to research and IPM, as for the lost opportunities for developing successful IPM programmes. There are many books on management that are relevant and should be read by anyone interested in becoming a research manager (e.g. Gilman, 1992). Dent (1995) specifically addresses issues relating to IPM programme planning and management. The subject is only given cursory coverage here dealing with organizational structures and management.
