A study on several aspects of photosynthesis of Chinese pine damaged by pine caterpillar

Based on field experiments and the analysis of available information, the effects were studied of defoliation carried out artificially or resulting from damage by the pine caterpillar (Dendrolimus tabulaeformis) on the photosynthesis of Chinese pine The results indicate that the photosynthetic compensation at a certain defoliation rate is widespread, being improved by light and water conditions.
