Abstract

Shrubs are important as browse and cover for game animals and songbirds in the desert-shrub and chaparral plant communities in the Great Basin (Plummer, 1968). They also play a major role in soil binding and watershed maintenance (Colby and Weissert, 1975). Therefore, an understanding of the agents which affect the health and survival of the shrubs is important. Insects-have a great impact on the health and reproductive capacity of shrubs. Pollinators, defoliators, borers, etc. must be studied and known for proper management.
