Description: The gypsy moth was accidentally introduced to North America near Boston by E. Leopold Trouvelot in 1869. Since that time, the range of the gypsy moth has slowly spread and the generally infested region presently extends as far as Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia and North Carolina. A separate isolated but expanding population exists in Michigan. The goal of this study was to quantify the process of gypsy moth spread through North America and relate the process to other landscape features. The ultimate purpose of this research is the development of sound predictions of future gypsy moth spread.
