Problem Addressed: Spruce budworm
Goal(s)/Objective(s): Introduces new entomological concepts, and asks as well as suggests how they may be used to develop an international strategy to reduce, postpone or perhaps even prevent future outbreaks from occurring through at least part of the range of the spruce budworm in North America

Ten characteristics of outbreak patterns are recognized in Ontario infestation maps for the period 1947-1983, for which explanations are available in recent scientific literature. A related long-term strategy of outbreak prevention is proposed for implementation internationally (Canada, U.S.A.) over the next decade.
