    Description

    The impact of the budworm on trees and stands and conditions that lead to susceptible and vulnerable stands are discussed. Long-term and short-term options dealing with the spruce budworm problem are presented. Examples of questions that plant-animal interaction research have answered are presented in the following scenarios: ( 1) can the release phase of an outbreak be detected, (2) can spruce budworm impact be predicted, (3) are regionwide rating systems accurate, and (4) what, if any, relationships exist between site classification units and spruce budworm impact.
