The enormous number of mite species across the world includes economically important pests of agricultural plants and forest trees and biological control agents. However, knowledge of their biology and ecology is greatly lacking. Poplar (Populus spp.) is grown in many countries and a number of mite species have previously been recorded. This study was conducted to determine the population dynamics of mites on poplar in 2021 in Samsun Province, Turkey where it is widely grown in plantations, along property boundaries and as a landscape tree.
