Influence of watering and trenching ponderosa pine on a pine sawfly

  title={Influence of watering and trenching ponderosa pine on a pine sawfly},
  author={Deborah G Mccullough and Michael R. Wagner},
Neodiprion autumnalis (Smith) larvae were caged for two successive years on root-trenched, watered, and untreated ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Doug. ex Laws.) to determine effects of host moisture stress on larval feeding. Levels of moisture stress (as measured by the Scholander pressure chamber) differed significantly among treatment levels during 1984 and 1985 larval feeding periods. Differences in larval feeding success were not detected in 1984. In 1985, however, larvae on trenched… CONTINUE READING
