Review of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service Response to Petitions to Reclassify the Light Brown Apple Moth as a
Non-Actionable Pest: A Letter Report

This new report examines the classification of the Light-Brown Apple Moth -- a species from Australia that was found in California in 2007 -- by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service as an actionable pest, which qualifies for quarantine restrictions and eradication.

This briefing was for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on September 14, 2009 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
