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.

Aims: To examine how the relative abundances of Siskins and Coal Tits in a garden in western Scotland varied annually with the size of the spruce cone crop, and to determine whether this pattern was similar nationally. Methods: A ten-year mist-net...
