    Description

    The objectives of this paper are: 1) to provide a general overview of adelgid biology and the various host relationships; 2) to review the current knowledge of the interactions of the balsam woolly adelgid, Adelges piceae (an introduced pest), and its North American hosts; 3) to report on the most recent research involving the interactions of this adelgid with Fraser fir, Abies fraseri., in the southern Appalachians; and 4) to provide a synthesis of the above in the form of an hypothesis regarding host tolerance for the balsam woolly adelgid.
