Forest Entomology 7 Forest Insects. 8 Forest Entomology Insects kill more trees in the U.S. each year than any other forest stress agent. In addition, they can cause significant growth loss, degrade lumber, make trees vulnerable to attack by secondary insects and diseases, spread tree pathogens, and can be a serious nuisance.

Archips semiferanus (also known as Archips semiferana) is a species of moth in the family Tortricidae, and one of several species of moth commonly known as oak leafroller or oak leaf larvae feed on the leaves of oak trees in the eastern United States and southeastern Canada and are a major defoliator of oak trees, which can lead to tree : Tortricidae. Natural and managed ecosystems provide critical products and services necessary to maintain the quality of life expected by the American people, including clean air and water, wildlife, food, products derived from plants and animals, and aesthetically pleasing environments for recreation and enjoyment. Maintaining these ecosystem products and services in the face of rapidly expanding human.

Fire and insects are natural disturbance agents in many forest ecosystems, often interacting to affect succession, nutrient cycling, and forest species composition. We review literature pertaining to effects of fire-insect interactions on ecological succession, use of prescribed fire for insect pest control, and effects of fire on insect diversity from northern and boreal forests in North. The Biological Survey of Canada (BSC) is a not-for-profit organization that helps to coordinate scientific research among specialists on the Canadian biota. The BSC network of scientists discovers, synthesizes, and freely shares knowledge about Canada’s biological diversity.

Introduction. Northeastern U.S. forests play an important role in storing carbon (Woodbury et al. ) and regulating energy, biogeochemical, and hydrological climate feedbacks (Bonan ).In addition, temperate forest ecosystems in this region provide many economic, ecological, and recreational benefits (O’Brien ; Benjamin et al.

).Given the high societal and ecological Cited by: 2. Such peaks in insect population size followed by defoliation can cause immediate effects on vegetation biomass and primary productivity (Babst, Esper, & Parlow, ; Lund et al., ) but also long‐term effects on carbon uptake and composition (Callaghan et al., ; Heliasz et al., ; Lund et al., ; Post & Pedersen, ).

A database that provides information on more than native tree and shrub species, and on almost insects and diseases found in Canada's forests. Gypsy moth rashes were documented in the early s, during a major infestation in the Northeastern United States.

In coastal Maine and Cape Cod, Massachusetts, caterpillar-triggered rash is much more likely due to exposure to Browntail moth (Euproctis chrysorrhoea). We investigated the spatial-temporal patterns of spruce budworm (Choristoneura fumiferana (Clem.); SBW) defoliation within 57 plots over 5 years during the current SBW outbreak in Québec.

Although spatial-temporal variability of SBW defoliation has been studied at several scales, the spatial dependence between individual defoliated trees within a plot has not been quantified, and effects of Author: Mingke Li, David A.

The Canadian environment. Canada is a huge country of 9, km 2, a land area second only to that of the Soviet extends about 4, km from the Atlantic shore of Newfoundland (longitude 52°W) to the Pacific Ocean and Alaskan border (°W). The health of the forestlands of the world is impacted by a number of insect pests and some of them cause significant damage with serious economic and environmental implications.

Whether it is damage of the North American cypress aphid in South America and Africa, or the destruction of maple trees in North America by the Asian long horned beetle, invasive forest pests are a major problem in Author: Surendra K.
