Dispersal and habitat heterogeneity are known to play important roles in the dynamics of interactions between natural enemies and their hosts. The fungal pathogen Entomophaga maimaiga was first found in North America in 1989 and subsequently spread across the gypsy moth distribution, causing epizootics in gypsy moth populations.
