Potential Geographical Range & Abundance of the Invasive Brown Marmorted Stink Bug under Climate Change Scenarios
- Kistner-Thomas, Erica
- Climate change is predicted to exacerbate agricultural losses from crop pests and pathogens by 1) expanding their geographic ranges, 2) reducing winter die-offs, and 3) increasing the number of generations produced per year. For example, numerous crop pests and pathogens have expanded their range northward since the 1960s due, in part, to warming annual temperatures.
