Abstract

The effects of gypsy moth defoliation on acorn production (the seed source for oak regeneration), and the forest floor regeneration environment were investigated. Parameters measured included: acorn quantity, weight, development, and viability; litterfall; and forest floor depth and biomass. Nineteen plots in north-central Virginia and western Maryland on which trees suffered heavy, moderate, or no defoliation were monitored over a two-year period.
