DescriptionProcedures for obtaining data about the sanitary state of forests in Russia are discussed briefly. The single parameter of official statistical accounts is the area of forests that have been killed or that serve as foci for pest and disease outbreaks. However, this scant information allows us to observe the variation over time of forested areas that have been killed by several unfavorable factors: insects, wild fauna (ungulates and rodents), diseases, weather, and human activity. The dynamics of outbreaks of the most important needle- and leaf-eating insects in the Russian territory from 1990-2001 are discussed.
