Natural mortality factors with impact upon Lymantria dispar and Apethymus abdominalis in Quercus sp. based forests



Natural mortality factors with impact upon Lymantria dispar and Apethymus abdominalis in Quercus sp. based forests



Anale Institutul de Cercetari si Amenajari Silvice 47: 119-130



This study analyses some natural mortality factors and its impact on the main defoliators of oak forests in Romania, viz., Lymantria dispar and Apethymus abdominalis. The defoliator L. dispar, as a consequence of integrated pest control registered along the last years, had reduced outbreaks practically showing only insignificant infestations in some oak forests from the southern part of the country. This forest has currently developed a rich complex of entomophagous insects.
