About Unit

This Working Party advances studies of the dynamics of forest insect populations and their impacts by stimulating communication and co-operation among interested scientists, foresters, and students world-wide. This emphasis provides opportunities to integrate across a range of forest insects and scientific disciplines so that connections with other IUFRO Working Parties are a priority. Meetings are anticipated every 1-2 years.

State of Knowledge

Emphasis is placed on understanding the factors affecting the dynamics of forest insect populations and their impacts in space and time, forecasting future population levels and impacts, and studying how those factors might be used to influence future population levels and impacts.
