Abstract

In 1987, we began a study to determine the relationships between gypsy moth growth and survival and forest site factors. The major objectives of this study were to determine the (1) relationships between gypsy moth survival and growth and different ecosystem conditions, (2) relationships among egg hatch, host phenology, and distribution of small larvae in the understory, (3) impact of leaf development age on gypsy moth growth and survival, and (4) role of host switching on gypsy moth growth and survival.
