The Practice of Forest Insect Management

  • Alan A. Berryman
Part of the Population Ecology: Theory and Application book series (POPE)


Throughout this book I have attempted to develop a general framework for understanding and managing forest insect pest populations—general in the sense that the principles and methods should be applicable to any insect pest problem anywhere in the world. I had originally planned to end the book at Chapter 10 but, on reaching that point, I became concerned that the reader would not have grasped how these principles and methods could be applied in practice. Even though the exercises at the end of each section, particularly the special project, were designed to provide experience in solving forest insect problems, nowhere is the practical side of forest management consolidated into a unifying whole.
