National Forest Health Database - Archive of Insects and Diseases Found in Canadian Forests
Entry ID: Canada_CFS_ArchiveInsectDiseas

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Since 1936, the Canadian Forest Service has been collecting data on insects,
diseases and abiotic conditions (e.g. storm damage) that are a potential threat
to the health of Canada's forests. Some of the data are collected as part of
ongoing surveys, while the rest are collected at random. This data set has
considerable continuity of information through both time and space. In addition
to the data, a large collection of insects and diseases and a mycological
herberium have been established at all CFS establishments across Canada. Within
the collections and herberia there is a wealth of information that is available
for extraction.The data detailing the insects, diseases and abiotic conditions
collected are used to support a number of decision-making functions that
ultimately may impact forest policy. These data are also used in research and
to help increase scientific knowledge of forests, ecosystems, biology, etc.
