Wood-borer Infestation Patterns on Oaks Along an Acidic Deposition Gradient from Arkansas to Ohio
Entry ID: USDA0184

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: To quantify attack density of various "live-oak borers" on black
oaks and white oaks at seven sites (in Arkansas, Illinois,
Indiana, and Ohio) and correlate the attack patterns with the
deposition gradient. More than 700 oak trees have been
permanently marked across the gradient. Data recorded for each
tree are: species, diameter at breast height, diameter at 30
centimeters, crown condition, ... View entire text
