Project

Metacommunity Dynamics of the Spruce Budworm in Novel Habitats
Changing climates and human use of forests mean that the metacommunity interactions of the spruce budworm, its parasitoids, hyperparasitoids, and host trees are likely to change. This project will model how the changes to the environment may manifest themselves within the metacommunity interactions between these species through a new landscape scale modelling approach.
