R&D Topics Addressed:
Continue outreach and public engagement in the Budworm Tracker program. Use genetics to assess population connectivity among sites. Provide a genetically-informed model of effective dispersal capacity. Assess whether low-density populations (e.g., southern NB, NS) are independent populations or whether they are in fact the offspring of migrants from the outbreak epicentre in QC.
