The light brown apple moth, Epiphyas postvittana, a leafroller native to southeastern Australia was discovered in California in 2006. The highly polyphagous nature of this pest adds to the importance of being able to predict the potential distribution of this invader across the North American continent. The spread of ectothermic species that lack winter diapause, such as E. postvittana, can be limited by their ability to tolerate cold temperature extremes. In this study we examined the cold… CONTINUE READING
