Mark record


Except for three small new infestations of large aspen tortrix, insect populations declined throughout the Yukon in 1978. A needle disease caused conspicuous discoloration of lodgepole pine over large areas, and a canker disease caused mortality and dieback of white spruce, particularly around Minto Landing.
