Assessment of the range of the processionary moth in relation to the extension of pine stands.

Predictive model, based on temperature and insect performance related to global change, of further expansion of the processionary moth and associated risk of outbreak in EU countries.

Estimation of the present and potential impact of the pest on the economy and society of the EU countries.
 

D1 - Method to assess the socio-economic impact of the pine processionary moth in different environmental and management conditions.

D2 - GIS supported model for the assessment of the range of the processionary moth, based on the temperatures affecting the winter survival of the larvae and insect performance. The tool will be accessible through the web page of the project and will allow to test different scenarios related to global change effects.
