From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Choristoneura fumiferana, the eastern spruce budworm, is a species of moth of the family Tortricidae. It is also commonly referred to as the spruce budworm.

      The spruce budworm is a normal part of forest ecosystems in Canada. However a cyclical surge in population typically occurs every years which can lead to . 1. Introduction. Of all the major natural disturbances in northeastern North America forests, spruce budworm (Choristoneura fumiferana (Clem.);SBW) outbreaks are more important than fire or wind in that they have a larger spatio-temporal scale (Blais, ), shorter return interval (40–60 years; Fraver et al., ), and greater influence on forest productivity (Morin et al., ).Cited by:

Spruce Budworm (Duman and Olsen, ) The Spruce budworm larvae are freeze-tolerant insects from North America, who suffer temperatures as low as –30°C in the conifer trees on which they live.

The larvae are wasteful feeders as they only eat partial needles and then move on to other. Abstract. Conifer-feeding budworms in the genus Choristoneura are eruptive species that periodically defoliate conifer forests in North America, causing growth loss and, ultimately, tree mortality.

These impacts create the need for management interventions. Emerging trends in forestry require a holistic approach that considers the implications of budworm management within an ecosystem context.
