Biological Invasions


Ecological study and modelling of biological invasions by insects [Dendroctonus micans, exotic strains of Ips typographus (Coleoptera, Scolytinae), the horse chestnut leaf miner Cameraria ohridella (Lepidoptera, Gelechiidae), the parasitoid of dougas fir seeds, Megastigmus spermotrophus (Hymenoptera, Torymidae), the oak processionary Thaumetopoea pityocampa (Lepidoptera, Thaumetopoeidae), the Siberian moth Dendrolimus sibiricus (Lepidoptera, Lasiocampidae)].
