Forest Insect and Disease Conditions in Canada 1992 is the 13th in a revised format of national annual reports of the Forest Insect and Disease Survey which date back to 1936. This report is produced cooperatively by the six Canadian Forest Service regional establishments and the Petawawa National Forestry Institute (PNFI). The Forest Pest Management Project coordinates technology development for FIDS and is based at PNFI. This report describes, under the title "Major Forest Insects and Diseases," pests considered to be currently significant in terms of their present or potential economic, sociological, or environmental impact. Surveys designed to assess forest health are described under the ARNEWS/NAMP title. Special surveys have been done in some regions to address pest problems in nurseries, seed orchards, and young plantations. Pests described under "Pests and Diseases of Regional Importance" are particularly significant in one or two regions but have little national impact. The status of many other pests is presented in tabular form by region under the heading "Other Insects, Disesases, and Damage". Although they usually do not have spectacular effects, they are important because of their potential for expansion, consideration of quarantine, and their possible role as vectors and as indicators of other problems. More detailed information on these and other pests can be obtained from regional centers of the Canadian Forest Service.
