Description: We describe spatial and temporal variation in the insect herbivore communities associated with the MOFEP, prior to application of contrasting cutting regimes. No pre-treatment differences were found in total insect density on either black (Quercus velutina) or white oak (Q. alba) during 1993-1995. There was great seasonal variation in insect abundance on both host species as well as high variation across years for white oak. White oak on north- and eastfacing slopes tended to have more insects than white oak on southand west-facing slopes. Sites under the auspices of the Missouri Department of Conservation for a longer time had higher insect densities than more recently acquired sites.
