Abstract

During a 1985 European expedition, 5 species of microsporidia were obtained from gypsy moth collected in Portugal Czechoslovakia, and Bulgaria. From 1986-1989, we released all 5 species of these microsporidia into gypsy moth populations in isolated woodlots in Maryland. This presentation is a summary of the conclusions and recommendations based on the results of our experimental releases.
