    Description

    RMRS research on insect pests focuses mostly on conifer pests. There is a long history of invasive insects causing significant impacts, mortality, and changes in forest ecosystem structure in North America. Perhaps the most evident example is the introduction of the gypsy moth, Lymantria dispar, into eastern North America in the 1860s (Forbush and Frenald 1896). Although not well understood, it has caused shifts in forest structure and significant resources have been spent in management and control efforts that continue today (http://www.fs.fed.us/ ne/morgantown/4557/gmoth/).
