    Description

    As gypsy moth expands into a new region, the threat of damage from its infestation is increasing greatly. The potential economic damage from the pest is extensive, considerably compounding the already substantial aesthetic damage and urban nuisance problems. One way to help forest managers deal with this threat is by providing them with a computer program which can help them determine how to set priorities for their forest lands by relative risk from gypsy moth. The program being developed, called GypsES, will serve as a surrogate "expert" on gypsy moth treatment, so it is referred to as an "expert system". The hazard rating module described here is one of several components of an integrated system.
