Abstract

This paper describes the conditions that make stands of spruce (Picea spp.) susceptible to attack by the white pine weevil, Pissodes strobi Peck, in British Columbia and discusses how host genetic resistance could be utilized to complement silvicultural tactics in the management of this pest.
