Description: Within the crowns of red pine, Pinus resinosa Ait., trees, larvae of the cone insect, Dioryctria disclusa Heinrich, tended to follow the distributions of their foods. Between-tree distributions of larvae, however, were relatable to food distributions in only two of five years. Cone damage/tree by D. disclusa increased linearly with cone abundance per tree when insect populations were large relative to cones. Percentage cone damage/tree was not significantly correlated with cone abundance.
Keywords: negative binomial, sampling, cone damage, male strobili, model
