Title: Inference of adult female dispersal from the distribution of gypsy moth egg masses in a Japanese city

Author: Liebhold, A.M.; Turcani, Marek; Kamata, Naoto

Year: 2008

Publication: Agricultural and Forest Entomology. 10: 69-73.

Abstract: The native range of the gypsy moth Lymantria dispar (L.) spans the temperate forests of Eurasia. Across this region, a clinal female flight polymorphism exists; gypsy moth females in eastern Asia are mostly capable of directed flight, those in western and southern Europe are largely incapable of flight and populations distributed across the centre of the distribution exhibit a range of intermediate flight behaviours.
