Host plant preferences in larvae of the eastern spruce budworm, Choristoneura fumiferana



Host plant preferences in larvae of the eastern spruce budworm, Choristoneura fumiferana



Proceedings of the 5th International Symposium on Insect Plant Relationships, Wageningen, the Netherlands, 1-4 March 1982: 19-24



Choristoneura fumiferana (Clem.), a serious pest of the spruce-fir forest complex in eastern North America, feeds on the new foliage of balsam fir (Abies balsamea), white spruce (Picea glauca), red spruce (P. rubens) and black spruce (P. mariana). Feeding preference tests on 5th- and 6th-instar larvae collected in New Brunswick in 1980 showed that sugars and glycosides from all 4 host-trees were highly stimulating for the larvae.
