    Description

    Various native and exotic insects and diseases affect the forest ecosystems of the Hoosier-Shawnee Ecological Assessment Area. Defoliating insects have had the greatest effects in forests where oak species predominate. Increases in oak decline are expected with the imminent establishment of the European gypsy moth. Insects and pathogens of the pine forests are artifacts of stand origin and age. Chestnut blight and Dutch elm disease have had the greatest broad-ranging and historical effects on the non-oak, broad-leaved forests.
