Found 10 records similar to Brown Spruce Longhorn Beetle Regulated Areas
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) established a regulated area as part of its efforts to eradicate the Asian longhorned beetle (ALHB). With the regulation of this area, there are restrictions on the movement of nursery stock, trees, logs, lumber, wood, wood chips and bark chips from certain deciduous trees identified as hosts of the ALHB and firewood of all species. These restrictions are necessary to prevent the spread of the ALHB. This protects Canada's environment and forest resources, and also helps keep international markets open to the forest industry and nurseries in non-regulated parts of Ontario and in the rest of Canada.
An Excel database containing Asian Longhorned Beetle survey data.
To slow the spread of the Hemlock woolly adelgid to new areas, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) uses measures to control the movement of potentially infested materials. Slowing the spread of HWA will protect Canada's environment and forest resources. It also helps keep international markets open to the forest industry and nurseries in non-regulated parts of Nova Scotia and in non-regulated parts of Canada.
Collection of ground beetles and lepidoptera collected in nine forested sites on the island of Anticosti in 1993.
Area delineating the Mountain Pine Beetle Salvage area
Area of moderate to severe defoliation (including beetle-killed trees) by insects
We measured the foliage area, weight and number of buds on young and mature balsam fir and white spruce trees. With these measurements total amounts of foliage per tree and per unit area of forest land can be calculated. These estimates can be used to determine the absolute numbers of insects feeding on these trees, numbers that are important in understanding patterns and fluctuations of population abundance. We also discovered that spruce budworm larvae occur preferentially in buds arranged in clusters.
This dataset is associated with the article authored by Jacques Régnière, Lisa Venier and Dan Welsh entitled "Avian predation in a declining outbreak population of the spruce budworm, Choristoneura fumiferana (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae)" which will be published in the "Insects" scientific journal. The impact of avian predation on a declining population of the spruce budworm, Choristoneura fumifereana (Clem. ), was measured using single-tree exclosure cages in a mature stand of balsam fir, Abies balsamea (L.), and white spruce, Picea glauca (Moench.) Voss.
This dataset is associated with the article by Marine Pacé, Nicole J. Fenton, David Paré and Yves Bergeron entitled "Differential effects of feather and Sphagnum spp. mosses on black spruce germination and growth". It includes data of black spruce germination (greenhouse), seedling growth (0 to 6 months, greenhouse) and sapling growth (2-3 years, greenhouse and field, 49°44’N, 79°17’W). Seeds, seedlings and saplings were subjected to different treatments: 3 types of ground cover (bare soil, feather mosses, Sphagnum spp.
This dataset is associated with the article authored by Marine Pacé, David Paré, Nicole Fenton and Yves Bergeron entitled "Effect of lichen, Sphagnum spp. and feather moss leachates on jack pine and black spruce growth ". It includes growth surveys of jack pine and black spruce in greenhouse at different stages of development (0-6 month-old and 2 year-old seedlings). Seedlings were subjected to different types of leachates: jack pine was subjected to control (bare soil), feather moss and lichen leachates; black spruce was subjected to control (bare soil), feather moss and Sphagnum spp.
