The Food-Plants of the Browntail Moth Euproctis Chrysorrhoea L.(Lep.: Lymantriidae) in East London [link]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
The stature of Euproctis chrysorrhoea L., the browntail, as a pest in east London is well-documented: Chalmers-Hunt (1977), Plant (1993) and Hoyle (1993) describe browntail infestation in the London Borough of Newham, with the first two named authors referring to plagues in the 1970s. Chalmers-Hunt (1977) specifically named Wanstead Flats and Tower Hamlets. Hoyle (1993) detailed Newham in the context of infestation across most of London. Data on specific food-plants used in east London, or in urban areas generally, are restricted to Hoyle (1993) and Plant (1993), with additional unpublished data being available from certain London boroughs. Voute & van der Linde (1963) described the food-plants used by the browntail in the Netherlands, and the frequency with which certain plants were used over others. This field study aimed to look at the plants used by E. chrysorrhoea in east London over two years (1995-1996) and to assess food-plant preferences.
