I'm a research scientist in #forest #ecology at the @cflscf (@NRCan). With a high-expertise team, we are looking at the dispersal patterns of the most important pests in eastern North American conifer forests: the #sprucebudworm. 2/
@cflscf @NRCan #Sprucebudworm #outbreaks occur every ca 30-40 years and can last 5 to 15 years. The last major outbreak (1969-92) covered 55 M ha (yes MILLIONS !) and resulted in tremendous losses in the forest sector. (below: area defoliated in 1975). 3/
