This multidisciplinary compilation of 12 reports concerns primarily the environmental monitoring of the spruce budworm aerial spray operations in New Brunswick in 1986 with some information from other jurisdictions. The 15 authors report on the operational and regulatory aspects of the spray program and on the insecticide ecology in ecosystems associated with spruce-fir forests which include studies on songbirds, freshwater fauna, toxicology, insecticide analysis, insecticide transport, persistence and contamination. The insecticides studied were fenitrothion, aminocarb, mexacarbate and Bacillus thuringiensis.
