Scale-dependent portfolio effects explain growth inflation and volatility reduction in landscape demography

Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Vol. 114, No. 47. (21 November 2017), pp. 12507-12511,


[Significance] Population demography is central to many problems in ecology, evolution, and conservation biology, yet there is a gap between the information needed about the demography of population over multiple spatial scales and the available data, which are largely local. Inspired by concepts from landscape ecology and Markowitz's investment portfolio theory, we address this lacuna by developing a method for quantifying and predicting the demography of multiple populations across spatial scales and apply it to gypsy moth populations. We show that population ...

Climate change increases the drought risk in Central European forests: what are the options for adaptation?

Forestry Journal, Vol. 60, No. 1. (1 January 2014),


The paper presents information on the projected drought exposure of Central Europe, describes the anticipated dynamics of the regional forests, and identifies measures facilitating the adaptation of forests to climate change-induced drought risk. On the basis of an ensemble of climate change scenarios we expect substantial drying in southern Slovakia and Hungary, while such trends were found to be less pronounced for the Czech Republic and Austria. In response to these climate trajectories, a change in species composition towards a higher ...


Biological activity of the nuclear polyhedrosis virus isolates against the gypsy moth Lymantria dispar (L.)

Folia Forestalia Polonica, Vol. 42 (2000), pp. 41-54


Results are reported of laboratory and field tests conducted in Poland to compare the biological activity of two nuclear polyhedrosis virus (NPV) isolates - a polyhedra water suspension from dead gypsy moth larvae collected in 1997 in the Biebrza National Park, and 'Gypchek', a NPV product from the USA - against gypsy moth (Lymantria dispar), a serious pest of orchards and broadleaved forests in eastern Poland. In laboratory tests, mortality and feeding intensity of the infected insects were compared and LT50 ...


Lymantria dispar (gypsy moth)



[Excerpt: Preferred Scientific Name] Lymantria dispar [Preferred Common Name] gypsy moth [Summary of Invasiveness] The gypsy moth is likely to ultimately occupy virtually all portions of the temperate world where oaks and other suitable host plants occur. Consequently, the northern hemisphere is more at risk for establishment than the southern hemisphere though some suitable hosts do occur in these areas. The gypsy moth is apparently not able to persist in very cold (e.g. Finland) or warm (subtropical to ...


Suitability of North American tree species to gypsy moth: a summary of field and laboratory tests

No. NE-211. (1995)


As the gypsy moth expands its range into new portions of the United States, there is a need to predict which tree species will be attacked by this defoliating insect. There have been several studies describing feeding preferences of the gypsy moth, but these results have not been summarized in a single list. We report and summarize all of the major tests of foliage suitability to gypsy moth for tree species that are found in the United States. Foliage suitability to ...


Analysis of Trophic Indices in Gypsy Moth (Lymantria dispar L.) Larvae from Two Geographic Populations

Russian Journal of Ecology, Vol. 33, No. 5. (2002), pp. 342-348,


Specific features of larval feeding in two geographic populations of the gypsy moth are considered. It is shown that in larvae reared on an artificial diet, trophic indices depend on several factors, including the age and sex of larvae and the food plant on which the parental generation developed in nature. It is shown that larval micropopulations belonging to the same geographic population but feeding in nature on different plant species differ from each other to a greater extent than those ...


Factors affecting Lymantria dispar mortality in a willow wood in northern Italy

Bulletin of Insectology, Vol. 62, No. 1. (2009), pp. 21-25


Mortality factors affecting a Lymantria dispar (L.) (Lepidoptera Lymantriidae) population in a willow wood next to the Po River (northern Italy) were studied from 1997 to 2007. In that period population density of L. dispar was low, ranging from 5.5 egg masses/100 trees to 18.8 egg masses/100 trees. Willow woods are not the most suitable habitat for gypsy moth populations, which rarely increase to an epidemic level on this host. Mortality is affected by the action of several natural enemies: Anastatus ...


Host preferences of the gypsy moth in eastern North American versus European forests

Revue d'Entomologie du Quebec, Vol. 31, No. 1-2. (1986), pp. 43-51


The host preferences reported for gypsy month, Lymantria dispar (L.) (Lepidoptera: Lymantriidae), are compiled and compared for temperate zone forests in Europe versus eastern North America. Species of Larix, Salix, Populus, Betula, Alnus, Ostrya, Fagus, Quercus, Castanea, Amelanchier, Crataegus, Prunus, Sorbus, Malus, and Tilia are clearly preferred by gypsy moth larvae in both Europe and North America. North American species of Carya, Sassafras, Hamamelis, Rhus, and Nyssa are acceptable but species of Maclura, Morus, Liriodendron, Platanus, Gleditsia, Robinia, Gymmocladus, Ilex, Diospyros, ...

Biodiversity loss from plant communities is often acknowledged to affect primary production but little is known about effects on herbivores. We conducted a meta-analysis of a worldwide data set of 119 studies to compare herbivory in single-species and mixed forests. This showed a significant reduction of herbivory in more diverse forests but this varied with the host specificity of insects. In diverse forests, herbivory by oligophagous species was virtually always reduced, whereas the response of polyphagous species was variable. Further analyses ...


Expected impacts of climate change on forests: Czech Republic as a case study

Journal of Forest Science, Vol. 57, No. 10. (2011), pp. 422-431


We provide fundamental information about the future development of selected climate elements in relation to anticipated threat to forests in the Czech Republic. All analyses were carried out in relation to four elevation zones with specific potential forest vegetation – up to 350 m a.s.l. (oak dominance), 350–600 m a.s.l. (beech dominance), 600–900 m a.s.l. (beech-fir dominance), 900–1,100 m a.s.l. (spruce dominance). We found out that while the projected increase in mean annual air temperature is almost constant over the Czech ...


Effects of drought and heat on forest insect populations in relation to the 2003 drought in Western Europe

Annals of Forest Science, Vol. 63, No. 6. (14 September 2006), pp. 613-624,


Although drought affects directly tree physiology and growth, the impact of secondary factors (insect pests, pathogens and fire) is often greater than the impact of the original stress and can lead to important tree mortality. In 2003, Western and Central Europe experienced a drought and heat waves that led to extensive forest damage. This paper reports on the impacts of drought and high temperatures on forest insect populations in the context of this exceptional event. Observations of changes in population levels ...


Potential effects of climate change on insect herbivores in European forests - General aspects and the pine processionary moth as specific example

Forest Ecology and Management, Vol. 259, No. 4. (08 February 2010), pp. 831-838,


The nature of “climate change” will differ with geographical regions and its final impact on ecosystems vary with the extent of temperature increase, changes in irradiance and levels of UVB, amount and patterns of precipitation and humidity, and alterations in the incidence and nature of abiotic disturbances. Despite many uncertainties, there is consensus in the fact that global warming already has and will have impact on the temporal and spatial dynamics of insect herbivores. Ectothermic organisms are affected by the changes ...


Climate change impacts, adaptive capacity, and vulnerability of European forest ecosystems

Forest Ecology and Management, Vol. 259, No. 4. (16 February 2010), pp. 698-709,


This study compiles and summarizes the existing knowledge about observed and projected impacts of climate change on forests in Europe. Forests will have to adapt not only to changes in mean climate variables but also to increased variability with greater risk of extreme weather events, such as prolonged drought, storms and floods. Sensitivity, potential impacts, adaptive capacity, and vulnerability to climate change are reviewed for European forests. The most important potential impacts of climate change on forest goods and services are ...
