Abstract

Nuclear polyhedrosis virus (NPV) is the only entomopathogen that plays an important role in the natural regulation of North American gypsy moth populations. Recent European studies suggest that populations of gypsy moth in Eurasia are regulated primarily by the interactions between NPV and several species of microsporidia. Researchers have proposed that the introduction and permanent establishment of microsporidia into North American gypsy moth populations may reduce the frequency, duration, and severity of population fluctuations.
