Abstract
The gypsy moth is a major defoliator of a wide variety of wood plant species. Oaks (Quercus spp.) are preferred, and within the Quercus some are more preferred than others. The goal of this study was to evaluate various Quercus taxa for their relative suitibility for gypsy moth larval development with the hopes of identifying additional Quercus species that might be incorporated into existing oak breeding programs. Results from this study will hopefully contribute to the selection and development of oak species less preferred by the gypsy moth, and for use in forest plantings, the urban forest, and landscapes.
