1. Cyclic population dynamics of forest caterpillars are often associated with epizootics of nucleopolyhedrovirus, but it is not known how these viruses persist between generations or through the fluctuations in host population density. 2. To explore the question of virus persistence at different phases of the population cycle, the nucleopolyhedroviruses of two species of tent caterpillar that co-occur in British Columbia, Canada, Malacosoma californicum pluviale (western tent caterpillar) and… CONTINUE READING
