Abstract

This report is the last in a series produced by the Forest Insect and Disease Survey (FIDS), a former nationally coordinated program that was implemented by the Canadian Forest Service (CFS). More recently, the scope and orientation of FIDS evolved into the Forest Health Network (FHN) of the CFS.

In this final FIDS report the major insect pests are described first, then the most important diseases. Abiotic stresses are discussed next. Abiotic stresses are commonly weather related and may include frost, drought, and windstorm damage. Surveys of forest health by the Acid Rain National Early Warning System (ARNEWS) and the North American Maple Project (NAMP) follow. The appendix, Other Insects, Diseases, and Damage, consists of summary tables of pests, diseases, and other effects that usually do not have widespread effects, but are important because of their potential for expansion, considerations of quarantine, and their possible role as vectors and indicators of other problems. Insects and diseases are listed alphabetically by their scientific name. (There is no report for the Maritimes Region in the appendix.) The Select Bibliography consists of forest health-related articles, information reports, and presentations by CFS personnel. More detailed information on these and other pests and conditions can be obtained from CFS headquarters or regional establishments.
