Title: White fir stands killed by tussock moth...70-mm. color photography aids detection

Author: Wert, Steven L.; Wickman, Boyd E.;

Date: 1968

Publication Series: Research Note (RN)

Description: The use of large-scale 70 mm. aerial photography proved to be an effective technique for detecting trees in white fir stands killed by Douglas-fir tussock moth in northeastern California. Correlations between ground and photo estimates of dead trees were high. But correlations between such estimates of lesser degrees of tree damage--thin tops and topkill--were much lower; increased training of interpreters could improve these correlations.

Keywords: Douglas-fir tussock moth, Hemerocampa pseudotsugata, white fir, Abies concolor, aerial photography, photo interpretation, photogrammetry, remote sensing, insect damage, defoliation damage, California
