The genesis of the USDA Interagency Research Forum on Invasive Species can be traced back to a special appropriation from Congress in 1983 to initiate a Gypsy Moth Research and Development Program in response to the massive gypsy moth outbreak of 1979-1982. Over 4 million hectares of forest land were defoliated in 1981. Though the Northeastern Research Station was the lead agency in this initiative, the U.S. Congress directed that the majority of the funding should be facilitated through state and university cooperators. In 1986, the Northeastern Research Station scheduled a review in Morgantown, WV, to review accomplishments of the research funded to date, reassess priorities, and identify research needs.
