The activity of the phytochemical defenses of red maple (Acer rubrum L.) and sugar maple (Acer saccharum Marsh.) against the forest tent caterpillar (Malacosoma disstria Huebner).

Rob W. Nicol
The forest tent caterpillar (Malacosoma disstria Hubner) is a serious economic pest of many deciduous trees throughout North America. This insect avoids the foliage of red maple (Acer rubrum L.).

It was discovered that the foliage of sugar maple (Acer saccharum Marsh.), generally considered to be a food host of the FTC, could also contain...
