    Special Issue on Forest Pest Control


    When forest pest population is in relative balance with other biological population, including natural enemy insects, it can not cause disaster. However, once the population of other organisms decreases, this balance is destroyed. The number of pests will increase rapidly, resulting in rampant disaster. Forest pests kill more trees every year than forest fires. How to prevent and control the harm of forest pests scientifically is still a hot spot in the field of forest science.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original researches and review articles on exploring forest pest control. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Forest entomology
    • Forest quarantine
    • Silviculture technique
    • Chemical control of forest pests
    • Biological control of forest pests
    • Physical control of forest pests

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly notice that the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue – Forest Pest Control” should be chosen during your submission.


    According to the following timetable:
