Brittany Barker and Len Coop of the Oregon IPM Center, along with Tyson Wepprich and Fritzi Grevstad of OSU's Botany and Plant Pathology Department, and Gericke Cooke of USDA-APHIS recently published a paper on an amazing new technology called DDRP: Degree-Days Risk, and Phenological Event Mapping. Here’s what you need to know:
Read all about it: DDRP: real-time phenology and climatic suitability modeling of invasive insects is currently in preprint and available now!
