THE SPRUCE APHID IN WESTERN EUROPE : ECOLOGY, STATUS, IMPACTS AND PROSPECTS FOR MANAGEMENT

Objective



The main object of this project is to review and coordinate current research on the spruce aphid (a serious pest of Sitka spruce) to help in planning future work, and to encourage new researchers into this field. Some limited support for jointly-used centralised facilities is also envisaged. The project will allow for a synthesis of results and will promote a state-of-the-art publication for joint researchers and planners Management Europe.
