Scientific Summary 113 in IUFRO News Vol. 42, Issue 10, early November 2013
Global climate change is affecting biotic disturbance patterns in forests around the world. The protection and preservation of this valuable resource is critical to the functioning of ecosystems and economies, and the future is uncertain. Against this background, the influence of climate on key forest insect physiological processes that drive population irruptions and growth was a main theme throughout the conference on "Forest Insect Disturbance in a Warming Environment" held on September 15-19, 2013, at the Banff Centre, Banff National Park, Alberta Canada.
