Evidence that defoliation can induce long-term responses in perennial plants that can regulate insect population dynamics is based largely on studies using deciduous trees and folivores, particularly Lepidoptera. Studies with evergreen trees, and with insects feeding on other plant parts, have yielded more variable results. This study examined the effects over several seasons of controlled defoliation on the suitability of an evergreen conifer, red pine (Pinus resinosa) to insects and pathogens… CONTINUE READING
