Climate constraints for siberian moth distribution in Europe
A simplistic bioclimatic model of the Siberian moth Dendrolimus sibiricus Tschtvrk. (Lepidoptera: Lasiocampidae) is based on the moth's basic biological requirements, expressed through summer thermal conditions (growing-degree days above 5 °C, GDD5), moisture conditions (annual moisture index [AMI]) and the ratio of warm degree-days to annual precipitation.
