Sitka spruce insects: past, present and future

Sitka spruce insects: past, present and future

Proceedings of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, B Biological Sciences 93(1-2): 157-167

The status of insects on Sitka spruce in Britain is examined in relation to the attributes of this tree as a widely planted exotic. Both time in Britain and particularly the area planted influence insect species diversity. The abundance and status of selected insects of pest importance are examined. Future trends receive attention, particularly in relation to potential importation of pest insects, and this is examined for a number of species from Europe and N.
