    Description

    A large number of state and Federal experiment stations, universities and Federal, state and private resource management organizations have participated in the USDA Expanded Southern Pine Beetle Research and Applications Program (ESPBRAP) since its inception in 1975. The objectives of this accelerated effort have been to utilize available knowledge more fully and to develop or improve methods for preventing or reducing losses due to the southern pine beetle. Nearing the completion of the Program, we thought it appropriate to synthesize some of our results and to determine how they might be used to evaluate control tactics. To accomplish this, about 40 representatives from Federal, State and industry organizations and a number of universities were asked to come together at the Toro Hills Hotel, near Many, Louisiana, to participate in a symposium. The meeting was jointly sponsored by ESPBRAP and the Southeastern Area of State and Private Forestry. The information resented at the symposium is reproduced here for the benefit of all those interested in what has been learned about evaluating southern pine beetle control tactics.
