By applying quantification theory I, a model for predicting the destructive extent of Aiolomorpha rhopalodes on Phyllostachys pubescens stands was developed. T-test of multiple correlation and partial correlation coefficents, combined with the comparison on the loading of environmental factors, showed that topography, species composition and structure of the bamboo stand, and climate played the dominant role in affecting the development and distribution of Aiolomorpha rhopalodes. The results can be used in predicting the damaged degrees of the bamboo stands by the pests and formulating the corresponging control measures.
