Hyphantria cunea host preferences

I am a new graduate student doing a paper on the host species preferences of
the Fall Webworm,
(Hyphantria cunea) in the Keene, NH area.  Here it has an
extreme prediliction for Black Cherry (Prunus 
serotina).  I am unable to
find any references specifically on H. cunea host selection factors,
I note that it appears very polyphagic in horticultural reports
from around the country.

I would appreciate any direction for sources of
information on this topic.
