    Abstract. This book presents a synthesis of published information on mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae Hopkins [Coleoptera: Scolytidae]) biology and management with an emphasis on lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta Dougl. ex Loud. var. latifolia Engelm.) forests of western Canada. The effect of mountain pine beetle disturbance is to periodically reinfest forests with too many susceptible mature trees, removing this class and moving on. From the standpoint of our model, it seems quite reasonable that mountain pine beetle and lodgepole pine have co-adapted to maintain a dynamic self-regulation on large enough landscape scales.

    Forests in central Colorado look very different today than they did twenty years ago: millions of trees have been killed by mountain pine beetles (Dendroctonus ponderosae, fig. 1).The mountain pine beetle is a native insect that is roughly the size of a grain of rice (fig. 2), but large populations of this tiny bug have had a huge impact on forests in Colorado and western North America. We quantified the effect of mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae) outbreak on nitrogen (N) cycling through litter, soil, and vegetation in lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta var. latifolia) forests of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem (WY, USA) across a 0–30 year chronosequence of time-since-beetle disturbance. Recent (1–4 years) bark Cited by:

    An extensive mountain pine beetle infestation of lodgepole pine forests during the period resulted in drastic changes to upper elevation forest landscapes of the northern Rocky Mountains. Changes in regional climate helped trigger and sustain the outbreak, but recent research indicates that forest structure was also a key determinant of the outbreak's severity. The mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae Hopkins, Coleoptera: Curculionidae, Scolytinae) is a native insect of the pine forests of western North America, and .

Mountain pine beetle in lodgepole pine forests by Arthur L. Roe Download PDF EPUB FB2

Mountain pine beetle (MPB) is an insect native to the forests of western North America and is also known as the Black Hills beetle or the Rocky Mountain pine beetle. MPB primarily develop in pines such as lodgepole, ponderosa, Scotch and limber pines, and less commonly affect bristlecone and piñon pines.

The mountain pine beetle deplete s Rocky Mountain lodgepole pine stands by removing periodically the largest, most vigorous trees. Some stands are replaced by suc­ ceeding species in 80 to years. Intensities of mountain pine beetle and dwarfmistletoe damage are influenced by forest associations and elevation.

This book presents a synthesis of published information on mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae, Coleoptera: Scolytidae) biology and management, with an emphasis on lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta var. latifolia) forests of western Canada.

NPS. Pine Beetle Epidemic From Canada to Mexico Bark beetles are native insects that have shaped the forests of North America for thousands of years.

Bark beetles range from Canada to Mexico and can be found at elevations from sea level to 11, feet. MOUNTAIN PINE BEETLE MANAGEMENT IN LODGEPOLE PINE FORESTS Symposium Co-sponsored by: National Science Foundation Washington State University University of Idaho Models describing losses of lodgepole pine and mountain pine beetle survival by life stages were prepared from data accumulated during 13 years of research on the beetle/stand.

Mountain pine beetle Dendroctonus ponderosae Key Wildlife Value: The outbreak dynamics of mountain pine beetle differ depending on the pine host and stand type. In pure lodgepole pine stands, mountain pine beetle and stand-replacing fire are the key agents responsible for recycling older stands.

Stand-replacing wildfires initiate even-aged stands. Theory and Practice of Mountain Pine Beetle Management in Lodgepole Pine Forests [National Science Foundation] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers.

Theory and Practice of Mountain Pine Beetle Management in Lodgepole Pine ForestsAuthor: National Science Foundation. Mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae) is a species of insect pest which lives in the forests of western Canada and the United beetle feeds on the inner bark of pine trees like the lodgepole pine, forming tunnels under the bark to lay their ly, the mountain pine beetle prefers to attack sick or old trees because they can't defend themselves easily.

A theoretical model was constructed to examine the relative effects of lodgepole pine phloem thickness, and resistance to attack, on the dynamics of the beetle population. Analysis indicated that mountain pine beetle outbreaks are triggered by rapid declines in stand resistance resulting from climatic disturbances, insect defoliation, by:   The mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae) is a wood-boring insect native to western North America and attacks a wide range of pine trees including lodgepole, ponderosa, western white, whitebark, limber and does not attack Jeffrey pine.

The mountain pine beetle (MPB) has many natural predators including insects, parasitoids and. Jack pine, which stretches across the Canadian Shield into Ontario, is also susceptible to MPB infestation.

Mountain pine beetle has not yet been detected this far east, but poses a significant threat to the area. Native to Western Canada, the MPB could become a devastating invasive species if it reaches the pine forests in Eastern Canada. Mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae Hopkins; MPB) is an aggressive bark beetle that attacks numerous Pinus spp.

The mountain pine beetle, Dendroctonus ponderosae (Coleoptera: Scolytidae), is the most aggressive member of its genus in the western United States.

Populations of the beetle periodically build up and kill most of the large dominant lodgepole pines, Pinus contorta var. latifolia, over vast beetle is indigenous to North America and probably has been Cited by:. The spread in the Northeast won't be as visually dramatic as in the Rocky Mountains, where mountain pine beetles killed trees across millions of nearly contiguous acres, because eastern forests.Recent research provides a new perspective on the causes of mountain pine beetle outbreaks in lodgepole pine forest of the Rocky Mountains.

The most explosive outbreaks seem to originate in stands of low current vigor but having a high percentage of trees with thick phloem. Because large beetle populations can overcome the resistance of relatively vigorous trees, once an outbreak Cited by: Discusses the influence of tree diameter, phloem thickness and habitat type (as indicated by forest associations at different altitudes) on tree selection, intensity of attack by Dendroctonus ponderosae, and mortality of Pinus contorta in three habitat types and the effects of beetle infestation of stands in a number of areas in the Rocky by:
